Patriarchate : Clergymen, choir members and altar servers will be able to drive for participating both in today's and Easter services

Clergymen, choir members and altar servers will be able to drive for participating both in today's and Easter services, the Georgian Patriarchate said in a statement issued today.

"On the evening of April 16, the government administration announced a nationwide ban on cars and other private vehicles starting from today, 12 am, until April 21. This decision caused a great dissatisfaction among the population and, of course, among the clergy and believers. The ban was not agreed with the Georgian Patriarchate. As it was made clear during a phone conversation later, clergymen, choir members and altar servers will be able to drive for participating both in today's and Easter services, ”the statement reads.
