Consecration of the foundation stone

On November 22, on the feast of the Icon of the Most Holy Theotokos “Quick to Hear”, on the island of Panglao, the consecration of the foundation stone at the construction site of the temple in honor of the icon of the Mother of God “Quick to Hear” took place. With the blessing of Metropolitan Pavel of Manila and Hanoi, the consecration was performed by the Secretary of the Philippine-Vietnamese diocese, Hieromonk Korniliy (Molev), together with the dean of the Manila District, Hieromonk Alexei (Lapshin). The ceremony was preceded by a prayer service to the Most Holy Theotokos. Panglao is the most popular Filipino island among Russian tourists. Also, quite a few (by Filipino standards) compatriots live here on a permanent basis.
