Fr. Igor continues his theological studies in Kiev

    On February 20-24 our Rector, Rev. Priest Igor Tarasov was in Kiev, Ukraine to continue his theological education. He studies at Kievan Theological Academy, the most ancient religious school of the Russian Church founded in 17th century. It is presently located at the Kiev Cave Lavra, a very revered and holy place, a cradle of the Russian monasticism. At the Academy Fr. Igor took final exams of the second semester of his third year of studies. Fr. Igor also had an opportunity to visit the holy places at the Kiev Cave Lavra.
    After a successful taking of his exams Fr. Igor was asked to perform a rite of blessing of the newly purchased vehicle. A nice local man named Yuriy who is often driving Fr. Igor in Kiev was very happy to get his new car blessed at the holy place of the Kiev Lavra and by a priest from a remote America.
