On 3 May 2019, during his visit in Poland to take part in the Day of Remembrance of Holocaust victims murdered by the Nazi during World War II, His All-Holiness Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew visited Warsaw. His Holiness was accompanied by His Eminence Metropolitan Emmanuel of France and the Archivist of the Patriarchal Archive Very Reverend Archimandrite Agathangelos Siskos.
After the doxology in the academic chapel of Saints Cyril and Methodius, His Beatitude Metropolitan Sawa of Warsaw and all Poland greeted the Ecumenical Patriarch expressing gratitude to God for the opportunity to meet His All-Holiness in the Paschal Week and trusting that his visit to Poland would prove to be fruitful. In response, His All-Holiness emphasized the very good, friendly relations between the two Primates, wishing him good health.
After dinner and rest, His All-Holiness Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew and His Beatitude Metropolitan Sawa visited the site of the church of the Saint Sophia actually in construction in Warsaw. This visit was the last point of the short stay of the Ecumenical Patriarch in Warsaw.
