Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew, in an announcement on Wednesday, confirmed that a divine liturgy for the Feast of the Dormition of the Virgin Mary - the equivalent of the Feast of the Assumption - will be held at the Holy Monastery of Panagia Soumela in Turkey, which has reopened after five years of renovations.

In a telephone call to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Tuesday, the Patriarch thanked him for the systematic renovation at the monastery, which reopened on that day.
