Feast of Saint Catherine 2019

Many pilgrims came this year to celebrate the feast of Saint Catherine.

The blessing of the five loaves at the end of vespers.

The newly polished lamps were like multi-coloured stars.

The icon of the Virgin Mary and Christ Child on the iconostasion.

Metropolitan Maximos of Ioannina, and Metropolitan Joachim of Hellenoupolis, of the Patriarchate of Jerusalem, celebrated the Divine Liturgy, together with fifteen priests and three deacons.

The shrine of Saint Catherine was adorned with embroideries.

At the conclusion of the Liturgy, we carried the relics of Saint Catherine in a procession around the church, commemorating the present members of the community, and those who have gone to their rest before us. Prayers were also said for all the pilgrims who had joined us for the holy feast.
