Divine Liturgy, Myra (Demre)
Feast of St. Nicholas
Divine Liturgy is celebrated in the Church of Saint Nicholas each year on his feast day. The Metropolitan of Myra, Chrysostomos, normally presides. Every ten years the Greek Patriarch of Constantinople, Bartholomeos, conducts the liturgy. He did so in 2013, shown below. Attendance at these liturgies is usually around 500.
