We invite everyone to join us for the 2019 Pilgrimage Weekend. His Eminence Metropolitan Hilarion, First Hierarch of the Russian Church Abroad, will preside at the Divine Services. Visiting clergy are invited to concelebrate at the hierarchal services.
After Sunday morning’s Divine Liturgy, a festive banquet will be held in the spacious hall of the Holy Spirit Orthodox Church in Huntington. All are welcome to attend the banquet.
Many come to Pilgrimage Weekend every year from all over the country to join with the monks and with one another in liturgical worship and fellowship. Over the years, friendships have formed amongst fellow pilgrims, thus making Pilgrimage Weekend a reunion for old friends, a spiritually enriching experience for newcomers, and most importantly an occasion to partake of the Holy Mysteries and to strengthen one’s faith.
