A spiritual center founded in Bethlehem pilgrimage site
On Monday, the 23rh of July/5th of August 2013, His Beatitude Theophilos, Our Father and Patriarch of Jerusalem, was visited by the Patriarchal Commissioner in Bethlehem, Archbishop of Jordan, Theophylaktos, accompanied by select members of the Arab-speaking Community of Bethlehem (Rum Orthodox). At the meeting, He was informed about the completion of necessary works and preparations for the foundation of a Spiritual Center near the pilgrimage site of Bethlehem. The center aims to offer religious, Christian, linguistic and technical information mostly intended for the youth of the Bethlehem congregation.
His Beatitude praised and blessed this significant project for the young people of the Patriarchate and suggested ways in which it may operate, also proposing to give blessings at its opening in due time.
