Our Priest

Priest > Details > Our Priest

We first notice Father Dumitru Emilian Popa (from Freiburg in Breisgau, Germany) who has supported us with much dedication in the activity of our parish for over 20 years. We must not forget Father Sorin Petcu, also from Freiburg in Breisgau, who has always known how to respond to our requests and to help us.

In recent years, a special feeling of gratitude is due to Prof. Dr. Mihai Valica, from Vatra-Dornei, who, despite difficulties and oppositions of the Romanian Patriarchate, supported us during the period when we didn't have an own priest.

The actual Parish Priest is Father Valentin Bassarabescu-Puricel/Archpriest of Patriarchate of Constantinopol, Metropole of Switzerland, a former lawyer and graduate in orthodox theology of Saint-Serge / Sorbonne University in Paris. He is descended from the ancient families of Bassarabescu and Boteanu.
