CELEBRATION OF OUR ST. JOHN OF KRONSTADT IN RUSSIA.

From the 9th to the 16th June 2015, Archpriest Michael Taratuchin and Tamara Kallaur-DeBernardis travelled to St. Petersburg, Russia, as official participants and representatives of both our parish and Memorial Fund in the celebrations of the 25th Anniversary of the Glorification of our St. John of Kronstadt in Russia.  Back in November of 2014, we had just celebrated the 50th Anniversary of St. John's Glorification by our Russian Orthodox Church Abroad.  The President of our Memorial Fund, His Grace, Bishop Peter of Cleveland, also participated in the celebrations held in St. Petersburg, Kronstadt and Sura, home village of St. John in the Arkhangelsk region, along with seven priests and two deacons of our Russian Church Abroad, joining over 220 clergy from Russia and other countries.  Over 22 countries with churches, monasteries and organizations of St. John of Kronstadt were represented with a total of almost 500 participants, culminating with a patriarchal divine liturgy celebrated in Sura led by His Holiness, our Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and All Russia on Sunday 14th June 2015.  Among the concelebrants with the Patriarch were Bishop Peter of Cleveland, Mitred-Archpriest Michael Protopopov from Australia, Mitred-Achpriest Alexander Belya, Dean of the New York City Deanery and Protodeacon John Barbus from Australia.  Below are some photographs of the events held in St. Petersburg, Kronstadt and Sura.

A special word of thanks to the Very Rev. Mitred-Archpriest Nikolai Belyaev, senior priest of the St. John of Rila Convent on Karpovka in St. Petersburg, and chief organizer of this celebration, and chairman of the Sv. Ioannovskaya Semya, and to all their members for the limitless love, kindness, endless hospitality and gifts which they extended to all of us.  May God bless them always and grant them many years!
