His All-Holiness Bartholomew I of Constantinople

At the end of February 2020, His All-Holiness Bartholomew I of Constantinople lived a rare jubilee of his 80th birthday. On this occasion, the founder and director of the NAPS Institute sent him a congratulatory letter in which, inter alia, he expressed his sincere thanks to the Ecumenical Patriarch for all the personal gestures and personal supports he had shown to the activities of NAPS.

Bartholomew I is the 270th successor to the Apostle Andrew on the Holy Throne of Archbishop of Constantinople - New Rome. His All-Holiness has supported the ecumenical efforts of NAPS since the establishment of the Institute in 2004. The Patriarch has twice named his personal legate for this event in the history of the NAPS Ecumenical Concerts and received the NAPS representatives several times directly at the Ecumenical Patriarchate Headquarters in Fener (Istanbul).
