The Feast of Saint Demetrios the New 2019 | PHOTO GALLERY

The Patriarchal Cathedral’s square in Bucharest was filled with pilgrims coming from across Romania to celebrate the feast day of Saint Demetrios the New, the spiritual protector of the capital.

Thousands of believers waited in line for hours to bow down before the relics of St Demetrios the New, the newly-glorified Saint Dionysius Erhan, and St Philothea, a martyr associated with the Romanian village through her depiction as dressed in traditional folk costume.
