      The Cross of St Andrew the First Called to be brought to the Russian
      Orthodox Church

      9.07.2013 ·  
      With the blessing of His Holiness Patriarch Kirill of
      Moscow and All Russia and by agreement with the Holy Synod of the Greek Orthodox
      Church, the Cross of St. Andrew the First Called will be brought to the Russian
      Orthodox Church to stay in her fold from July 11 to August 2, 2013. Timed to the
      1025th anniversary of the Baptism of Russia, the bringing of the
      shrine to Russia, Ukraine and Belarus has been arranged by the St. Andrew the
      First Called Foundation with the support of the Apostoli charity of the Orthodox
      Church of Greece.
       
      The Cross on which the apostle was crucified is kept in St. Andrew’s in
      Patras on Peloponnesus Peninsular, Greece. It is a shrine important for the
      whole Christendom.
      Schedule of the movement of St. Andrew’s Cross:
       
      July 11-15 – St. Petersburg
      July 16-19 – Moscow Region
      July 19-25 – Moscow
      July 26-29 – Kiev
      July 29-August 2 – Minsk
       
      The bringing of St. Andrew’s Cross to the four cities is called to stress
      that the spiritual tradition of the Russian, Ukrainian and Byelorussian peoples
      goes back to the same source – the blessing given by St. Andrew during his
      missionary journey to Old Russia, and to Baptism embraced by the Old Russians in
      the Kievan font in 988.
