Dear in the Lord Reverend Fathers,
Saturday, March 16th will mark the fifth anniversary of the blessed repose the ever-memorable Metropolitan Laurus. That morning, Divine Liturgy will be celebrated at 6:00 AM by His Eminence, Metropolitan Hilarion, in Holy Trinity Monastery in Jordanville, followed by a panihida. All diocesan clergy are invited to Jordanville to honor the memory of our beloved First Hierarch.
With the blessing of Metropolitan Hilarion, all diocesan rectors are asked to serve panihidas in their parishes on Saturday evening, March 16th, prior to the All-Night Vigil, and are asked to commemorate the ever-memorable Metropolitan Laurus at the Great Entrance on Sunday morning, March 17th.
May our Lord God grant eternal rest to His faithful servant, the ever-memorable Metropolitan Laurus, in the mansions of the righteous.
With love in Christ,
Archpriest Serge Lukianov
