On Thursday noon, August 15, 2019, the Anglican Bishop in Jerusalem Souheil Dawani visited the Patriarchate, escorted by a group of the Anglican Church Bishops from various continents and a group of Anglican pilgrims.
The exquisite group was warmly received by Patriarch Theophilos of Jerusalem and Hagiotaphite Fathers. The Patriarch welcomed and informed the guests for the mission of the Patriarchate and the cooperation relations it holds with the Anglican Church in England and elsewhere.
Patriarch Theophilos also added the role of the Patriarchate for the preservation of the religious and Christian character and Status Quo of the Old City of Jerusalem.
Thanking Him, Bishop Souheil Dawani stressed the good relations of the Patriarchate with his Church, as it is made clear by the meetings of all the Churches at the Patriarchate by the care of the Primate of Jerusalem and the Mass Services that the Anglicans hold by the permission of the Patriarchate at the chapel of the Monastery of Abraham next to the Horrendous Golgotha and on their Christmas Eve at the chapel of St. George next to the Basilica in Bethlehem.
Finally, the Patriarch offered souvenirs from Jerusalem as blessings to the members of the group.
