The eighth annual pilgrimage to the holy places of Russia will take place this year July 20—August 6 under the guidance of His Eminence Metropolitan Hilarion, first hierarch of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia.
This year’s pilgrimage includes visits to the churches and cathedrals, monasteries, and holy relics of Moscow, Kazan, Perm, Barnaul, Biisk, and Gorno-Altaisk, and offers a unique opportunity to experience both famous and lesser-known aspects of Russian Church history, spirituality, tradition, and culture.
Participants will have the opportunity to celebrate in holy Russia the feasts of the Appearance of the “Kazan” Icon of the Mother of God, St. Olga the Equal-to-the-Apostles, St. Vladimir the Equal-to-the-Apostles, St. Seraphim of Sarov, and the holy prophet Elias.
Every day will begin and end with prayers with His Eminence and the faithful pilgrims, as well as several other opportunities to attend the divine services in churches and monasteries throughout Russia, and on the Kazan-Perm cruise.
The eighteen day pilgrimage costs $2550 per person in addition to airfare. For more details and contact information click here
