O Holy St. Demetrius pray to God for us!

On January 27, the Georgian Orthodox Church marks St. Nino’s Day.


InterpressNews was told at the Georgian Patriarchate that in all Orthodox temples of Georgia special festive prayer will be held. His Holiness Ilia the Second, Catholicos Patriarch of All Georgians, is delivering a religious service at Sioni Cathedral.


  On January 26, Saint Nino’s Cross was brought to the Dusk Prayer and put     down at the center of the temple. This is the very cross with which the saint baptized the whole Georgia. The believers will have a chance to visit the cathedral in the evening of January 27 and worship the miraculous cross.


Thanks to the prophecy of St. Nino, all Georgians’ enlightener and the equal to the prophets, the Christianity was declared the state religion of Georgia in 326, during the reign of the King Mirian and Queen Nana.


The Georgian Orthodox Church marks St. Nino’s Memory day twice a year. June 1 is the day when she arrived in Georgia, while January 27 is her death day.
