Military students on a pilgrimage trip to Diveyevo
On July 6, the students of the military training center at Moscow’s State University of Land Management visited the monastery. Lieutenant Colonel Mikhail Tolmachev headed the group of military trainees.
The students take part at the military drills held at Murom’s pontoon bridge brigade’s location. “The drills last for a month and we make it worthwhile to students by taking them on pilgrimage trips to the nearby sacred sites,” shared Leut-Col. Tolmachyov. “The tradition of taking a pilgrimage trip was established in 2007. This year, 42 students joined us on pilgrimage.”
While at the Seraphim-Diveyevo monastery, the military students venerated the holy relics and went to the holy springs.
