Day of Slavic language with kids

A thematic meeting for young parishioners was held at the parish in honor of the Kazan Icon of the Mother of God in Vung Tau, Vietnam. The children, together with Priest Yevgeny Tsukalo, the rector of the temple, talked about the holiday – the Day of Slavic Writing, its history and significance. The meeting began with a discussion on the topic: paper or e-book? “It was very pleasant and interesting to watch the children arguing and argumentatively proving which option is better!” shared Father Eugene. We also watched a movie and then together we took the waste paper collected in advance to the reception point and went to a cafe with the money we earned. Everything is as it happens only in the happiest childhood…

Feast of St. Nicolas

On May 22, the patronal feast was celebrated at the parish of St. Nicolas the Wonderworker in Kayupo, Sarangani. This is one of the greatest ancient saints whose incorruptible relics rest in Italy but he is not well known in the Roman Catholic Church as well as in the Philippines. But in Russia, literally everyone knows him, his image is the third after Lord Jesus and His Mother in each iconostasis.

Day of Slavic Culture

The favorite holiday of Vietnamese youth studying Russian language is the Day of Slavic Writing and Culture on May 24. Russian language is taught in 25 educational institutions in Vietnam: special schools for talented children, universities, academies… Every year the representative office of Rossotrudnichestvo holds Olympiads in the Russian language. The winners receive the right to continue their education at Russian universities free of charge. The award ceremony took place on May 20 at an evening dedicated to the Day of Slavic Writing and Culture at the Russian House in Hanoi. The event was attended by the Rector of the parish of the Russian Orthodox Church in Hanoi, Hegumen Micah (Selyakov).
