His Eminence Archbishop Kyrill has announced an All-Diocesan Celebration-Pilgrimage to Saint Seraphim of Sarov Church in Monterey, California.  “This year, 2014, the Local Russian Church celebrates the 700th Anniversary of the birth of the venerable God-bearer Sergius of Radonezh, and the Church Abroad – the 50th Anniversary of the glorification of Holy Righteous John of Krondstadt.
