The feast of the Dormition of Saint Anna at the Patriarchate of Jerusalem

On Monday, 7 August  2023, the Patriarchate of Jerusalem celebrated the feast of the Dormition of Saint Anna in the holy Monastery outside the Gate of Saint Stephen, inside the wall of the Old City of Jerusalem.

On this feast, the Church commemorates the event of the Dormition of Saint Anna, whose prayer moved God’s mercy and gave her, who was barren until then, as the fruit of the womb the Most Holy Theotokos and Mother of our Lord and God and Saviour Jesus of Christ.

In honour of Saint Anna, Great Vespers were held in the above-mentioned Holy Monastery in the evening and the Divine Liturgy in the morning, presided over by His Eminence Archbishop Filoumenos of Pella, with Archimandrite Christodoulos and Archdeacon Mark.

After the Divine Liturgy, the Hegoumen Archimandrite Meletios offered a reception at the hegoumeneion.
