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 On the Transfiguration of the Lord on August 19, we were honored to pray together with 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 Kirill. The whole group was filled with festive and prayerful joy.

“I always dreamed of visiting Valaam, reading about the monastery, watching a movie. And this year I turned to the pilgrimage service, which organizes trips there from Tallinn in the summer. But I was told that the group has already been recruited, there are no places. There was a new expanded program on Valaam with visits to historical monasteries. Now I am not giving up hope to wait for the next season and sign up in advance for a pilgrimage with the Ancross service. I know you can trust them completely. Thank You. I wish you interesting and new pilgrimage routes.”
