On Sunday after the end of Divine Liturgy, with the blessing of the Chief of the Russian Ecclesiastical Mission in Jerusalem, Archimandrite Roman (Krassovsky), a prayer service was served for the blessing of the beginning of the new school year in the Bethany School for Girls at the Community of the Resurrection of Christ, in the church of St Lazarus and his righteous sisters Martha and Mary, . The prayer was performed by Archimandrite Innokenty (Sereda).
Unfortunately, the start of full-time classes at school was postponed by the Palestinian authorities to early October. But both teachers and students sincerely look forward to the opportunity to sit down at their desks again. Everything at school is ready for the start of the educational process. Therefore, they prayed both for the gift of strength and patience for learning, and that the Lord, as soon as possible, would remove all obstacles to the beginning of the new school year.
