Faculty colleagues visited Patriarch Daniel of Romania at the Patriarchal Residence on Wednesday, June 7, 2023.
Clergy who graduated from Sibiu’s Faculty of Orthodox Theology “St. Andrew Șaguna” in 1974 visited the Patriarchal Residence accompanied by their spouses.
The day’s program began with the veneration of the relics of St. Demetrius the New, kept inside the Patriarchal Cathedral, and continued with a guided visit to the Patriarchal Palace.
The former colleagues met with Patriarch Daniel in a private ceremony held in the Synodal Hall of the Patriarchal Residence.
Important names of Romanian Orthodoxy were part of the 1970-74 promotion of the University Degree Theological Institute in Sibiu, currently “St. Andrew Șaguna” Faculty of Orthodox Theology, including His Beatitude Patriarch Daniel and Metropolitan Serafim of Germany and Northern Europe, who could not attend this year’s meeting.
