Translation of orthodox relics

About the program

A person’s seeing a relic strengthens the person’s belief and gives the person necessary spiritual support. According to the Church, relics of men of faith remind us about the personality of a saint person and are a symbol of their presence among us; they hold the grace of the Holy Spirit which is presented to the Saint for their heroic acts. The Foundation of St. Andrew the First-Called does not only translate relics to eparchies of the Russian Orthodox Church but also organizes the educational work.
