The spiritual academy was attended by primates of the Orthodox Churches led by Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew, church dignitaries, representatives of other Christian Churches and traditional religious communities and members of the Honorary Board of celebration led by President of Montenegro Mr. Filip Vujanovic. His Eminence Amfilohije, Archbishop of Cetinje and Metropolitan of Montenegro and the Littoral pointed out in solemn speech that the Cathedral church of the Resurrection of Christ, which construction had begun two decades ago, represented a call for forgiveness and reconciliation in Montenegro.
