On the occasion of the beginning of the new church year, the Representation of the Romanian Orthodox Church to the European organizations in Bruxelles has organized yesterday, September 9, 2009, a reception attended by those who are representing Romania in Europe’s capital. Romanian Euro-parliamentarians, ambassadors, members of the Romanian representations and permanent delegations to the European Union and NATO, employees of European structures, have all shared moments of prayer and communion in the church of the Representation at 181 Rue des Palais, together with Most Rev. Iosif, the Romanian Orthodox Metropolitan of the Western and Southern Europe.
After the Te Deum service, His Eminence Iosif welcomed the guests and congratulated all those who work for the consolidation of the identity, credibility and stability of the united Europe, encouraging them to rise the prestige of Romania within the great European family, through their own dignity, perseverance and accomplishments.
