Historic Patriarchal Divine Liturgy for Patronal Feast


A unique and historic Patriarchal Divine Liturgy will be streamed live on June 29, 2014 at 10:00 a.m. Lebanon time (3:00 a.m. Eastern Standard Time), by Noursat (Telelumeire). The Liturgy will take place in the outdoor stadium at the University of Balamand at the conclusion of the June 26-28 Antiochian Unity Conference. The event, titled  "Antiochian Unity: Its Dimensions and Exigencies," was convened by His Beatitude John X, Patriarch of Antioch and All the East.

A sizeable delegation from the Antiochian Orthodox Christian Archdiocese of North America is in attendance and will be submitting a report of their activities upon their return. Faithful from all over Syria and Lebanon will be joining the international delegates in attending the Liturgy, with the patriarch and most metropolitans, archbishops and bishops of the Antiochian See, presiding at the Patriarchate's patronal Feast of Ss. Peter and Paul.
