Annunciation of the Theotokos, Bogotá, Colombia

Sunday, April 3, 2016

Honestly I didn´t expext to find a church looking like this in Latin America. I attended the service for three consecutive Sundays there. The first time I arrived during the Matins service, and father Mijail came out of the altar in order to greet me and welcome me. He also gave me a leaflet with the readings of the day (Gospel, Apostle etc.). Despite the church being built by the Arvanitis family from Greece, there was no Greeks in the church, but there were some Russians and some locals. The bigger part of the Liturgy was held in Spanish, with bits of Russian and Greek. You can hear part of it, below.
