On Saturday, July 2, 2011, the feast day of St John (Maximovich), the participants of the 12th All-Diaspora Russian Orthodox Youth Conference prayed during Divine Liturgy at Holy Resurrection Church in Meudon, France. The ceremonial service was led by His Grace Bishop Michael of Geneva and Western Europe and His Grace Bishop Theodosius of Seattle, along with clergymen of the Moscow Patriarchate, the Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia and the Exarchate of the Russian Orthodox Churches of the Constantinople Patriarchate. Also praying at the service was His Eminence Archbishop Gabriel of Koman, Exarch of Constantinople. Of note is that the great saint of the Russian emigration, whose memory was honored this day, frequently celebrated divine services in this church.
That evening, the participants of the conference visited the Russian Orthodox seminary in Paris, where His Grace Bishop Nestor of Korsun gave them a warm welcome and told them of the life and work of this school of theology.
