Photo-Report on the 12th All-Diaspora Russian Orthodox Youth Conference
On Wednesday, July 6, 2011, the 12th All-Diaspora Russian Orthodox Youth Conference, having been earlier divided into 15 groups, presented to the Hierarchy a set of proposals for manifesting and strengthening the salvific service of the Russian Church Abroad, by the "Apostolic going into the people," in the words of St Theophan the Recluse.
The bishops and priests participating in the conference appreciated the efforts of the youth and asked them to put together an appeal to the flock of the Church.
Later that day, the young conferees visited Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, where they venerated the Crown of Thorns and other holy relics.
