On Sunday, August 28 / September 10, 2023, on the commemoration of Saint Moses the Ethiopian, a Hierarchical Divine Liturgy was held in the Church dedicated to the Saint in Rafeidia of Samaria, presided over by His Emimence Archbishop Aristovoulos of Madaba with the co-celebration of the Hegoumen of Rafeidia Archimandrite Leontios, the Hegoumen of Jacob’s Well Archimandrite Ioustinos and the Dean Priest Athanasios Geramanis, Pilgrim from the Holy Metropolis of Thebes.
Before Holy Communion, His Eminence delivered a Sermon, praising the humble attitude of Saint Moses, for which he became an example to be imitated by the other fathers of the desert. Bringing the example of the humility of Saint Moses to today’s society, he urged the faithful to always bear in mind this and his humble Holy Temple, when they are occupied by thoughts of pride.
After the end of the Divine Liturgy, the Hegoumen Archimandrite Leontios and the stewards of the parish of Rafeidia offered a meal to the Fathers and the congregation.
