Just we returned from a pilgrimage trip to St. Petersburg and
the monastery of Alexander Svirsky from August 17-19. Joy with gratitude
overwhelms all the senses. The highest professionalism in the organization of the trip.
A very complex program – we visited the BLJ chapel. St. Xenia of St. Petersburg,
the Church of St. Andrew of Crete, the all-night service in St. Isaac’s Cathedral and drove through
the historical center of St. Petersburg. On Sunday, August 18
, they prayed at the Liturgy in the men’s Holy Trinity Alexander Svirsky
Monastery with the service of Abbot Anthony and the festive choir. And on a holiday

His Holiness Patriarch Kirill of All Russia at the Transfiguration Cathedral in Moscow
St. Petersburg. There they received communion and all received a Blessing from the Patriarch
The whole group was filled with festive and prayerful joy.
