ORTHODOX MISSIONS

TO THE ENDS OF THE EARTH

With the blessing of Archbishop Benjamin of Vladivostok and the Primorsky area, a delegation of the Vladivostor Diocese will be in the Republic of Vietnam with a pastoral visit from 31 October to 14.

It will be headed by Archpriest Sergiy Yakutov, dean of the central diocesan district. Visits are planned to the city of Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City, Vung Tau and Kamran, reports the Diocesan website.

“On November 4, the day of the commemoration of the Kazan Icon of the Mother of God, we will have a festal divine service in honor of the parish patronal feast in the town of Vung Tau; this is perhaps the main goal of our regular pastoral visits to Vietnam,” stated Archpriest Sergiy on the eve of his departure.

In addition to divine services, there are plans for familiarization tours and formal meetings, including one with the newly appointed Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary Ambassador of Russia in the Socialist Republic of Vietnam A. Kovtun.
