For the second year in a row, Orthodox prelates including Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew I and others conducted the Divine Liturgy for the Feast of the Dormition, at Sumela Monastery in Turkey.

From the article:
Quote
“Having such a monastery in the Black Sea is a blessing, this is a place of God,” Bartholomew said, speaking to journalists after the mass. “We are very glad to come here this year as well, we hope that we can do it again next year.”
He will come again with glory to judge the living and the dead. His kingdom will have no end.
