Announcement from Jerusalem Patriarchate

The Patriarchate website staff would like to inform the noble pilgrims of the Holy Land, that we have no obligation to inform them for their hospitality in rooms of the Patriarchate or at the Holy Monasteries belonging to it. This is an obligation of the travel agents who undertake the pilgrims’ tours. The noble pilgrims are therefore asked not to impose on the Website staff for this matter.
