      Patriarch Kirill thanks Catholics for their support in opening
      Orthodox seminary in France

      Moscow, December 4, Interfax - Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and All
      Russia thanked Catholic bishops for their support in opening a
      Russian Orthodox seminary in France.

      "The seminary will not only help bring up clerics for our parishes
      abroad, but also give Russian parishes people who know cultural life
      of Western Europe and modern theology of the Catholic Church," the
      Patriarch said at his meeting with Archbishop of Bordeaux Jean-Pierre
      Cardinal Ricard, Bishop Benoit Riviere of Autun and Auxiliary Bishop
      of Bordeaux Jacques Blaquart held in Moscow on Thursday evening.

      The Patriarch believes Russia and France have very special relations,
      in particular thanks to Russian immigrants and today there appear new
      opportunities for developing bilateral contacts.

      The Patriarch, as cited by his press service, pointed out to the
      growing number of Russians currently residing in Western Europe.
