On Saturday, January 21, 2023, Orthodox clergy, monastics, and faithful from around the West Coast joined the annual Walk For Life in San Francisco, California. The Western-American Diocese of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia was represented by the Secretary of the Diocese, Dean of Holy Virgin “Joy of All Who Sorrow” Cathedral, Archpriest Peter Perekrestov.
