The group will also have a chance to visit Moscow and Novodevichi and Sretensky monasteries.
There are ten participants from three ROCOR dioceses.
According to Fr. Andrei Sommer, vice-chair of the Synodal Youth Committee, “It takes a special person to want to travel the distance [from the U.S.] to the White Sea in order to make a difference. These kinds of youth of our church will be magnets for other youth in the future”.
The Fund for Assistance and the Moscow diocesan youth committee are sponsoring the trip.
