On Tuesday, January 5, 2021, the Royal Hours of Christmas were read at the Monastic Church of Saints Constantine and Helen of the Patriarchate.
The Royal Hours were read one day before Christmas Eve in order to ease the pilgrimage program of the Christmas Feast on Christmas Eve in Bethlehem.
The Royal Hours will be read according to the Status Quo on Christmas Eve in Bethlehem.
The Service of the Royal Hours at the Church of Saints Constantine and Helen was led by H.H.B. our Father and Patriarch of Jerusalem Theophilos with the participation in prayer of Hagiotaphite Archbishops and Monks.
