The Feast Day of Saint Spyridon, Bishop of Trimythus the wonderworker at the Patriarchate of Jerusalem

On Monday, December 12/25, 2023, the Patriarchate celebrated the feast of our holy Father Spyridon, Bishop of Trimythus the Wonderworker, in his holy Monastery, located in the Old City of Jerusalem near the Damascus Gate.

During this feast, the Church commemorates Saint Spyridon as the Father who defended the same essence of the Son to the Father in the First Ecumenical Council of Nicaea, in 325. He is also commemorated as a helper of the poor and weak. He was gifted with clairvoyance and working miracles, he “spoke to the dead and turned the prayer rope into gold and during the Divine Liturgy he would concelebrate with angels”.

The Divine Liturgy was presided over by His Eminence Metropolitan Joachim of Helenoupolis with the Archimandrites Christodoulos, Claudius, Amfilochios, Priest Nectarios and Hierodeacon Eulogios. The chanting was delivered by Hierodeacon Simeon with the School of Zion students, as the service was attended by faithful people, praying with warmth of heart.

During the Divine Liturgy, His Beatitude Patriarch Theophilos of Jerusalem and Holy Sepulchre Fathers visited the Monastery for veneration.

After the Divine Liturgy, the Hegoumen Archimandrite Father Philoumenos presented a treat to the Episcopal entourage and the congregation.
