VISIT OF THE ICON OF THE ABBESS OF MOUNT ATHOS

Parish Feast Day

   According to custom, our ruling Archpastor, His Eminence Archbishop Benjamin, blessed us with his visit to celebrate the feast day of our cathedral Holy Virgin Mary "Rescuer of the Perishing," which takes place every year on the Sunday closest to this holiday. Vladyka arrived in our temple on Saturday before the beginning of the all-night vigil. Many parishioners were already waiting for the arrival of our spiritual father, praying in the temple.

   Other priests also came to celebrate our parish feast day: a friend of our parish - the rector of St. Clement’s Church in Moscow, Archpriest Leonid Kalinin and the former rector of our cathedral, Archpriest Nicolas Boldireff.

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

CHRIST IS RISEN!

We finished our 40-day journey through Great Lent and our time of the joyful sadness of Holy Week, and once again we are blessed to enter into the glorious celebration of the Resurrection of Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. This is the celebration of life, this is the celebration of victory over sin and death, this is the celebration of our entry into the Kingdom of Heaven.
