On the Feast Day of Saint Andrew, the world's 300 million Orthodox Christians – the world’s second largest Church – venerate Saint Andrew, the First Called Apostle and Patron Saint of the Ecumenical Patriarchate. Seventeen centuries ago, Saint Andrew laid the foundation for the establishment of the Ecumenical Patriarchate in the ancient city of Byzantium, which later became the Roman capital Constantinople, and which is now modern day Istanbul, Turkey. The annual tribute to Saint Andrew is an opportunity to assess what progress is being made towards restoring full dignity to the Ecumenical Patriarchate and towards advancing human rights and religious freedom the world over.

To participate: zoom.us/join with Meeting ID: 86355005737.
