Pentecost in Vietnam
The Holy Spirit had come down to make people again one family, in God and with God.
On this great day one more family was born in our community- of Roman and Xenia. May the Holy Spirit grant them His gifts in abundance!
The works on the restoration of the church of St. Queen Helena in Little Baguio is completed! After a series of devastating earthquakes on Mindanao Island, this temple was partially damaged, like many other buildings in the region. With the help of donors from Russia and other countries, it was possible to carry out work to strengthen the structure of the temple with external reinforcement and restore damage. We thank all the helpers in this holy work. According to the architect who supervised the work, the temple is now ready to endure many such earthquakes. But we, of course, pray that the Lord will save the Philippine land from disasters.
We congratulate all Russian and Filipino people with the national holiday- Day of sovereignty and independence! Especially we congratulate our Metropolitan Pavel because today is 10 years of his bishop’s ordination!

On the last Sunday of Pascha, under the patronage of St Xenia of St Petersburg, our parishioners Lawrence and Anna have tied up their lives with the Lord’s blessing. A new Orthodox family is born! Many years, many children and many God’s blessings! Love each other as Jesus loves His Church, as St Xenia loved his husband
