All Saints Day- UNIT 4

Implementing a proposal of Archbishop Vikenty Morar of Yekaterinburg and Verkhoturye, the MP shall have a new all-Church holy day on its calendar, the feastday of the Assembly of All Saints of Yekaterinburg. Patriarch Kirill Gundyaev of Moscow and all the Russias blessed the celebration of the new holy day on the same day that it’s celebrated in the Diocese of Yekaterinburg at present, 11 February, according to a release from the patriarchal press office on Friday. The list of saints for this feast includes 63 holy ascetics and martyrs of the 17th to 20th centuries with a direct connection to the Diocese of Yekaterinburg. For the first celebration of the feast next year in 2011, a new icon of the Assembly of All Saints of Yekaterinburg was painted. (shown on left)
