      Adding to the beautiful atmosphere created by the
      Christmas feast, on December 26th the Orthodox
      youth from the four dioceses of Albania
      participated in the National Youth Festival
      organized by the Orthodox Central Youth Office,
      under the care of the Archbishop of Tirana,
      Durrës and All Albania, Archbishop Anastasios.
      This activity was held in the hall near the
      Church of the Annunciation in Tirana and the
      groups presented, with new creativity, songs,
      traditional dances, and folk songs from their regions.

      Archbishop Anastasios, the Metropolitan of
      Berati, Ignati, the assistant bishops of His
      Beatitude Archbishop Anastasios, His Grace Nikola
      and His Grace Andoni were in attendance, together
      with the clergy, youth and believers from various parts of Albania.
      Youthful enthusiasm was present in every moment of this activity.
      The first place was taken by a group of the
      ecclesiastical Lyceum “Holy Cross” in Sukth –
      Durrës, but as the chairman of the jury Prof.
      Milton Vako said, all were winners in this festival.

      At the end of the event, His Beatitude Archbishop
      Anastasios, among other things, reminded once
      again the youth of the four pillars on which they
      should base their activities: 1. Study, increase
      in knowledge of Christ, 2. Friendship, 3. Testimony, 4. Service.

      The National Youth Festival is an activity that
      takes place every year in Tirana, in order to
      give young people the opportunity to meet and get
      to know each other in the name of Christ and to display their artistic talents.
