He's Comin' to America

St. Tikhon (Bellavin)'s Relics to Visit America this year.

St. Tikhon’s relics will be brought to the U.S.A. and Canada in autumn for Orthodox flock abroad to venerate. Earlier Metropolitan Laurus addressed such request to Patriarch Alexy II of Moscow and All Russia and the Foundation’s administration.
As bishop of the United States, St. Tikhon asked the Holy Synod of Russia about forming a Western Rite using an Orthodox form of the Book of Common Prayer. His inquiry garnered a positive response. St. Tikhon is patron saint of the Antiochian Western Rite Vicariate. Ora pro nobis!
