Translation of relics of Andrew the First-Called

In 2003 the foot of All-Praised St. Andrew the First-Called was translated from the Russian St. Panteleimon Monastery on the Holy Mt. Athos to the towns of Russia, Ukraine and Belarus.

The relic was brought to Saint-Petersburg, to Valaam Island, to Nizhny Novgorod, Minsk, Moscow, Murmansk, Vladivostok, Yekaterinburg, Rostov-on-Don, Sevastopol and Kiev. For the first time people in Russia, Belarus and Ukraine united in the overall prayer to worship the relics of St. Andrew.
