The patriarch served the holy liturgy in the St. George Church in Prizren together with bishops and clergy of the Rašla-Prizren Diocese.
The liturgy was attended by a few dozens of believers. Addressing them after the service, the Patriarch said that he came together with the bishops to encourage people to stay but also to get encouragement from them as they were “brave people who remain and persevere in the territory of Kosovo and Metohija”.
A regular session of the Serbian Orthodox Church (SPC) Holy Synod and the Kosovo and Metohija Committee will be held in Prizren on Thursday, the Raška-Prizren Diocese released in a statement.
This meeting will discuss the problems that the Church is facing in the territory of Kosovo and the measures which the Church should take in order to ensure better protection of people, holy sites and heritage.
