Those of you wishing to add a festive dimension to your summer are warmly invited and encouraged to attend the Hierarchical Divine Liturgy and BBQ at Russian River, forthcoming this Saturday (23rd July).
Dedicated to the Kazan Icon of the Mother of God, the church and house at Russian River (Guerneville) are an important part of our local Russian Orthodox heritage. Attached to the Cathedral of the Holy Virgin on Geary Boulevard, the Russian River site is a place of retreat, prayer and community in our region.
Recently, the property has undergone renovations as the Cathedral prepares to make more active use of it as a place for retreats, conferences, gatherings, etc.
This Saturday 23rd July at 9.30 a.m., His Eminence Archbishop Kyrill will celebrate the Divine Liturgy, followed by a blessing of the restored property. The services will be followed by a festive BBQ lunch for all in attendance.
We hope you might enjoy a ‘get away’ to beautiful country to help celebrate!
INXC, Hieromonk Irenei
