Glory to Jesus Christ!
The project "From Ocean To Ocean," the movement of the Czestochowa icon through the world in defense of life, began in Vladivostok and is progressing very quickly. Ahead of us is Siberia and 23 European countries along the 18 thousand kilometers long route.
On Thursday, June 14, a conference was held in the center of Vladivostok on "Current problems of social assistance provided by the Church." It was dedicated to developing cooperation between Church and State in preventing abortion and other pathologies, as well as supporting traditional family values.
The Icon of Our Lady of Czestochowa continues the visit in Vladivostok on her pilgrimage through the world in defense of life. Now the icon is in the Cathedral of Our Lady of Care (Pokrowskij Sobor), where people continuously pray in front of her. This is an historic moment, because the world pilgrimage of Our Lady starts in Vladivostok on the shores of the Pacific Ocean in the Far East. The host of this visit is the Orthodox Church, Moscow Patriarchate, diocese of Vladivostok.
