On the weekend of March17 and 18 2018, Metropolitan Ambrose, accompanied by Deacon Johan Park visited our Parish of the Dormition of the Theotokos in Jeonju for the Saturday Vespers, the Matins and the Divine Liturgy of the Fourth Sunday of Lent. In his sermon he stressed that we should not move from unfaithfulness to faith, like the father of the child who was healed by Jesus Christ, but to remain firm and immovable in faith, saying in our prayer: I believe, Lord. But help me because my faith is not strong enough!
After the end of the Divine Liturgy, the Metropolitan had a special meeting with the Altar-boys. Then, during the common meal of, he informed the attendees that the Ecumenical Patriarchate accepted our invitation and our Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew will visit Korea in December. This information made everyone happy, many of whom expressed their joy to have the opportunity to meet His All Holiness in person for the first time .
After the meal, and just before his departing for Seoul, the Metropolitan had a meeting with the Parish adults, with whom he discussed the topic of putting our faith into practice in our everyday life.
