Fifth Anniversary of Russian Orthodox Church Unity to be Marked in San Francisco
In connection with this anniversary on Thursday, May 17 at 7:00 pm the Holy Virgin Cathedral in San Francisco (6210 Geary Boulevard) will host an evening dedicated to this great event. Historic footage of the signing of the Act of Canonical Communion will be shown and a new portrait of Metropolitan Laurus, painted in Russia specifically for the Holy Virgin Cathedral hall, will be presented. It is in this hall that in 2006 the IV All-Diaspora Council of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia convened. The Council passed a resolution whereby its participants expressed their intent and desire to heal the wounds of division in the local Russian Orthodox Church and the decision to restore Russian Church unity was made.
