Patriarchate of Jerusalem – December 2014
During this period leading to Christmas day, the Holy Archbishopric of Qatar offered its polyglot flock the opportunity to participate in a Bazar of Christmas Gifts. The event was enriched by performances based on various local traditions, on Friday, the 21st of November 2014 (New Calendar).
The event was honoured by the presence of the Ambassadors of Greece, the Republic of Cyprus, Romania, Bulgaria, Ukraine, Moldavia, Lebanon, Serbia, and the representative of the Russian Embassy to Qatar, as well as representatives by other denominations in Doha.
Handmade Christmas decorations, gifts and items of worship were offered for sale, in support of the work performed by the Archbishopric. All items were made by members of the Myrophorae Association, the Association of Youth and other members of the flock.
Also in offer was a great variety of specimens of Arab, Greek, Serbian, Romanian and Ukrainian cuisine, courtesy of numerous companies and ladies from the flock.
The whole event was indeed very successful, having attracted a large crowd of Orthodox from Qatar.
