Ambassador of Great Britain HE Stephen Woodsworth visits Patriarchate

His Eminence Metropolitan Amfilohije of Montenegro and the Littoral received today Ambassador of the United Kingdom HE Stephen Woodsworth in a formal visit, followed by his deputy Bill Longhurst and Srdjan Gligorijevic as his councillor.

The Ambassador expressed in Serbian, he knew very well, his enjoyment for having an honor to be for the first time in his diplomatic career in the Patriarchate of the Serbian Orthodox Church. He came here with a wish to present himself and to convey the greetings from his highest officials.

The talks were about all times in which two nations found the common language, as the times when our two Churches, our Orthodox and their Anglican had good relations, the great cooperation and great friends. Regarding this Metropolitan especially thought of our Holy bishop Nikolaj Velimirovic and their bishop of Chichester George Bell.

His Eminence Metropolitan received a gift from the Ambassador - a monograph that was printed in honor of 170 years of British- Serbian relations and cooperation.  The ambassador, in turn, received from Metropolitan a monograph " Sanctuaries of Kosovo" as well as the Official coat of arms of the Patriarchate.
