Today the students of the mission center in Davao city, having successfully completed their study and obedience, departed for Russia, to continue their studies at one of the Church’s premiere spiritual educational institutions – the Saint Petersburg Theological Seminary. Dimitry Cahilig, son of Father Deacon Moses Cahilig, returns after having studied for a year at the semionary in Belgorod; Kirill Beñalon is beginning formal studies this year.
Before the departure we prayed at the mission center for safe travel and happy return.
