25th anniversary of the repose of ever-memorable Metropolitan Philaret (Voznesenskiy)

10:12 AM



To all rectors and clergy of the Canadian Diocese.

This is to inform that on November 8/21 it will be a 25th anniversary of the repose of the ever-memorable Metropolitan Philaret (Voznesenskiy), who was the 3rd in the line of the First Hierarchs of our Russian Church Abroad, the 90th anniversary of which we celebrate this year, notably, on the very same day.

In order to honour the memory of the Very Most Reverend Vladyka Metropolitan Philaret, I request that a panikhida, or litia, would be served in all the parishes of the Canadian Diocese on this day, after the dismissal of the Divine Liturgy.


Bishop of Montreal and Canada
