Pilgrims from Diocese of Yeysk and Timashev
The parishioners from the Church of New Martyrs and Confessors of the Russian Church in Leningradskaya Cossack village, Diocese of Yeysk and Timashev, stayed at the monastery for the last two days. Presbyter Fr. Konstantin (Maltsev), the Rector of the church, led their parish group on this pilgrimage. Fr. Konstantin is active online and well known as a YouTube producer and an Orthodox writer. He also heads an international web-project called “BatyushkaLove” with eight more clergy as participants. In just one year, the video streams and podcasts made by clergy and posted on website received over a million of viewings.
While at the monastery, the pilgrims took part in the services, venerated the relics, and visited the springs. “My parishioners kept asking me to arrange this pilgrimage for the last two years,” shared Fr. Konstantin, “and it finally became possible. As we visit the monastery, our souls are filled with joyful songs of praise. I wish everyone to make a trip to this holy place and become a partaker of this fountain of God’s love and grace.”
