This summer Bishop Theodosy of Seattle, Vicar Bishop of the Western American Diocese, led a group of youths of the Russian Church Abroad on Pilgrimage to Russia. Participants were drawn from each of the diocese of the Russian Church Abroad. Included in this group were Miss Alix Kotar and Reader Nicholas Kotar, both graduates and former teachers at St. John's Academy. The group had a private reception and lunch with Patriarch Kyrill at Christ the Savior Cathedral in Moscow and traveled to Ekaterinburg for the Feast Day of the Royal Martyrs of Russia. Nicholas was interviewed in Ekaterinburg by TV Soyuz.
