Seminary Delegation Visits Russia
A delegation representing Holy Trinity Seminary, consisting of Deacon Vladimir Tsurikov, Assistant Dean, and five seminarians, visited Russia from June 19 to July 2, 2005. The group celebrated Pentecost at the Trinity-St. Sergius Lavra before visiting the churches and monasteries of Moscow, Rostov, Yaroslav, Solovki, and, finally, St. Petersburg. This trip, the first formal visit to Russia by seminarians of Holy Trinity Seminary, was undertaken with the blessings of both His Holiness, Patriarch Alexei II, and His Eminence, Metropolitan Laurus, and by special invitation of Archbishop Evgenii, Rector of the Moscow Theological Academy. A more detailed report of this visit will appear on this site in the near future.
