On Sunday 11 June, the Sunday of All Saints and the Day of Youth of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside Russia, the parishes and missions of our Diocese will be taking up a collection to assist in the construction in Sremski-Karlovci, Serbia, of a Memorial Church to Metropolitan Anthony (Khrapovitsky) and all the Russian emigres laid to rest in the Serbian land. Sremski-Karlovci, a town on the banks of the Danube River in central Serbia, was for a number of years home to the Synod of Bishops of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside Russia and headquarters of the Russian emigres under General PN Wrangel. This year, the centenary of the beginning of the revolutionary turmoil that forced so many Russians abroad, is also the centenary of the beginning of their presence and influence in Serbia. The memorial church is to be dedicated to Saint Mary Magdalene, Equal-to-the-Apostles, and will be built in Russian architectural style. More information about this edifying and worthy project of the Serbian Orthodox Church is available in Russian and English here. Please be prepared to give generously!
