I am delighted to celebrate the 60th anniversary of my ordination to deacon in the presence of the heads of the Alexandrian Church and the OCU, – patriarch Bartholomew

Patriarch Bartholomew confirmed the participation of the head of the OCU Epiphany Dumenko in the events on the Turkish island of Imbros dedicated to the 60th anniversary of the ordination of the head of the Phanar to the deacon, Romfea writes.

“I am glad to celebrate the 60th anniversary of my ordination to deacon in the presence of two brothers of the Holy Hierarchs of the Alexandrian and Ukrainian Churches,” Bartholomew said.

Recall that Patriarch Bartholomew will meet the memorable date only surrounded by the Patriarch of Alexandria and the head of the OCU. The primates of the Greek and Cypriot Churches will also not come in person, sending their representatives. The Primate of the Jerusalem Patriarchate, Patriarch Theophilus, who received an offer to attend the celebrations orally, declined the mentioned invitation from Patriarch Bartholomew, citing the situation with the pandemic.
