SS Cyril and Athanasius Institute is Hosting a Pilgrimage to the Holy Sites of Great Britain


As reported on the official website of the Western American Diocese of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia, SS Cyril and Athanasius Institute for Orthodox Studies is hosting an educational pilgrimage to Great Britain, from September 2-11, 2014.

The British Isles were among the first territories to receive the Gospel, the Faith having been brought to its shores by the Holy Apostle Aristobulus, and for more than a millennium — long before the Lord had led SS. Cyril and Methodius to the Slavic peoples — the British Isles were an Orthodox realm producing a multitude of saints, martyrs and luminaries; and though schism and the Reformation isolated Britain from her Orthodox roots for centuries, the Faith today is once again blossoming in one of the world’s most ancient Orthodox lands.
