The Feast of the Holy Great Martyr Paraskevi at the Patriarchate of Jerusalem

On Tuesday, July 26 / August 8, 2023, the memory of Saint Paraskevi was celebrated by the Patriarchate of Jerusalem in the chapel of the Holy Monastery of Saint Basil, where the Saint’s icon is kept. Saint Paraskevi confessed Christ and suffered a martyr’s death in Rome, during the reign of Emperor Antonios in AD 140.

In honour of the Saint, a Liturgy was celebrated on the morning of the feast by Archimandrite Bartholomew with the Archdeacon Mark and the Hierodeacon Dositheos with the participation of the faithful from Jerusalem and pious pilgrims.

After the end of the Liturgy, refreshments were served by the Elder Hegoumen Archimandrite Nektarios in the forecourt of the Church.
