The Feast of the Holy Maccabee Martyrs in Beer Sheva

On Saturday, August 13, 2022, Metropolitan Kyriakos of Nazareth went to the city of Beer Sheva, the capital of the desert of the Negev in southern Israel, and celebrated the Divine Liturgy in memory of the Holy Maccabee Martyrs, their mother Solomoni and their teacher Eleazar in the rented house, which serves as a temporary building of the church, until the Lord allows to erect a Holy Church of Beer Sheva.

The Divine Liturgy was attended by an official guest, the Consul of Greece to Tel Aviv, Mr Anastasios Konstantaras, representative of the Ambassador of Greece, Mr Kyriakos Loukakis.

At the Divine Liturgy the chanting was delivered in Slavonic, Greek, Romanian and Arabic, by all the members of the Greek Orthodox Russian-speaking Parish, under the direction of their Hegoumen, Archbishop Aristovoulos of Madaba, who also delivered a Sermon in Russian.

At the end of the Divine Liturgy, Archbishop Aristovoulos of Madaba hosted a meal for the Metropolitan and his Entourage.
