    Friday, 27th October 2017, on the Feast of St. Venerable Paraskeva, the Arch-Pastor of the Orthodox Church of Moldova, His Eminence Metropolitan Vladimir, celebrated the Divine Liturgy in Tvardita community, Taraclia Region.

    In his archpastoral guidance message to the praying community, Metropolitan Vladimir underlined the faith of our church-goers, who, regardless ethnic origin, gather around the holy Altar, and pray to Venerable Paraskeva. Revoking the live of this blessed lamb of Christ, and her spiritual gifts granted to her by All-good God, Christians strive to imitate her piety and love for the Creator. The hierarch called the Christians present at the service to follow the model of Venerable Paraskeva’s life. Metropolitan Vladimir also mentioned the pastoral, missionary, and administrative efforts of the parish rector, archpriest Vladimir, thanking him for his ministry and service to the glory of Christ and His Church.

    After the Liturgy, the praying community followed the hierarchs and priests in a procession around the church, with Gospel readings, prayers and spiritual chants.

    At the closing of the celebration, the church-goers came to the arhcpastor for blessing, and all children present in the church received prayer books.
