The Sunday of the Samaritan Woman was celebrated on Sunday May 26, 2019 at Jacob’s Well in Samaria in the city of Nablus.
On this feast the Church commemorates the event of the conversation of the Samaritan Woman with our Lord Jesus by Jacob’s well, in which according to St. John the Evangelist (ch. 4:42) He revealed to her that He is Christ the Messiah.
At this place of the Well, at the marvelous Church of St. Foteini, which the current Hegoumen Archimandrite Justin has constructed, the Divine Liturgy was officiated by Patriarch Theophilos of Jerusalem, with co-celebrants the Metropolitan Kyriakos of Nazareth, the Archbishop Aristarchos of Constantina and the Metropolitan Joachim of Helenoupolis, Hagiotaphite Hieromonks, Archimandrite Porfyrios and Archimandrite Ignatios, and Arab-speaking Priests.
The chanting was delivered by Archimandrite Leontios the Hegoumen the Community of the Annunciation in Rafidia, on the right in Greek, and the Rafidia choir on the left in Arabic, while the service was attended by a noble congregation of local faithful, Greeks, Russians, Romanians, Serbians and of other nationalities.
