  • [01] Vatican at St. Andrew's event in Patriarchate

  • [01] Vatican at St. Andrew's event in Patriarchate

    A delegation from the Vatican headed by Cardinal Walter Kasper has arrived in Istanbul on Friday in order to attend celebrations being held at the Ecumenical Patriarchate in the Fanar district to mark the feast day of St. Andrew, the Orthodox Patriarchate's patron saint.

    According to an announcement by the Patriarchate, it is customary for the Patriarchate and the Vatican to be represented by delegations at the feast days of their respective patron saints, as part of measures decided by Patriarch Athinagoras and Pope Paul VI when frosty relations between the two Churches first began to thaw.

    The Patriarchate's celebrations will end on Friday night with reception attended by diplomats and the Vatican delegation.
