In response to the invitation, the secretary of the Philippine-Vietnamese Diocese of the Russian Orthodox Church — hieromonk Korniliy (Molev) together with the rector of the Parish of the Theophany of the Lord in Talas, Davao del Sur — priest Joachim Gonzales, led the Thanksgiving Moleben in Kinabalan Integrated School. The service was attended not only by the students who were Orthodox Christians, but also by all the graduating students of the school. After the Moleben hieromonk Korniliy (Molev) blessed the graduates, together with their diplomas, with holy water and reminded them the importance of thanking God for everything in everyday. Father Korniliy also shared to the graduates that the service they experienced was the most traditional way of thanksgiving prayer. Congratulations to all graduates!
