NEW YORK: October 10, 2017
The Holy Prince Vladimir Youth Association Announces a Symposium on the 100th Anniversary of the Beginning of the Godless Era of Persecution

The Prince Vladimir Youth Association has announced an upcoming symposium: "The New Martyrs -- 100 Years and Our future."

The symposium is dedicated to the topic of the persecution of the Russian Church in the past century: what the story of those who died for their faith means to us, how it still affects Russian society, what connection the young Russian people of today have with this tragic chapter of their history. These are some of the important questions we want to ask ourselves.

The symposium will feature a lecture by professor Nadieszda Kizenko, followed by a discussion in which all attendees will be able to participate.

Light refreshments will be served at the end.

The event will take place on Friday, October 20, 2017, at 7:30 pm in the Baker Hall of the Synod of Bishops at 75 East 93rd Street (Park Avenue), New York, NY.
