      Patriarch Kirill to visit Mount Athos
      Moscow, May 30, Interfax - Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and All
      Russia will visit Greece and Mount Athos from June 1 to June 7.

      During
      his trip, the Patriarch will visit churches and monasteries of the Greek
      Orthodox Church and meet with its head, representatives of the Greek authorities
      and ethnic Russians living in Greece, as well as will travel to Thessaloniki and
      Veria, a spokesman for the Synodal Information Department said on
      Wednesday.

      "It will be the next visit between the fraternal local
      Orthodox Churches. Archbishop Ieronymos II of Athens and All Greece visited the
      Russian Orthodox Church last year," the spokesman said.

      From June 4 to
      June 7, Patriarch Kirill will visit Mount Athos, the unique monastic state and a
      major pilgrimage site for Orthodox Christians.
