Yesterday, Sunday the 13th, after the dismissal of Divine Liturgy, father Vladimir shared his impressions from the pilgrimage trip to the holy places in Russia.
Fellowship with the clergy and laity in Russia deeply touched Fr. Vladimir and the pilgrims from Canada. The kindness of the Russian clergy in relationships with the people of God, their openness and readiness to discuss not only the weather, but also the daily struggles will be remembered by all.
During the pilgrimage, Fr. Vladimir met protopriest Andrew Sommer, who was in Russia with a group of young people, and also with the clergy, who were accompanying the wonderworking Kursk-Root Icon of the Mother of God.
According to Fr. Vladimir, the trip was a big success and a source of spiritual enrichment for all participants.
