Holy Fire to arrive from Jerusalem to Romania on Holy Saturday

The tradition inaugurated by Patriarch Daniel in 2009 to bring the Holy Fire to Romania will also continue this year.

The Holy Fire will be brought from Jerusalem on Saturday evening, April 23, 2022, by Archimandrite Teofil Anăstăsoaie, the superior of the Romanian Patriarchate’s Settlements at the Holy Places.

As before, the Holy Fire will be distributed to the delegates of the Romanian Patriarchate’s dioceses present at Otopeni International Airport.

The Diocesan Centres, through their deaneries, will distribute the Holy Fire to each parish.

On the same evening, from 19:30 to 20:30, a ceremony will take place on the Hill of Joy when His Beatitude Patriarch Daniel will welcome the Holy Fire at the Patriarchal Cathedral.
