Seminarians in the Land of Pskov

Photo Report

His Eminence Metropolitan Tikhon (Shevkunov) of Pskov and Porkhov, only recently appointed to his new diocese, several weeks ago invited a group of seminarians from the Sretensky Seminary attached to Sretensky Monastery in Moscow to the Pskov lands. Along with them were monks of the monastery and a number of Moscow parishioners. On this third Sunday after Pentecost the Church commemorates of all the saints who shone forth in the lands of Pskov, and to celebrate this ancient Russian land we present a photogallery of that weekend.
