Panikhida for those who served in World War I

   On December 2nd, 2018 in Los Angeles, a panikhida was served for Russian soldiers who served  in WWI by the initiative of the parishioners of Holy Virgin Mary Russian Orthodox Cathedral and Russian public organizations: the Russian Imperial Union of the Order, Russian Children’s Welfare Society, the Nizhny Novgorod Scout Group, the local department of the Russian Nobiliary Assembly, the Congress of Russian Americans, and St. John of Kronstadt Home. The panikhida was served by the rector of Holy Virgin Mary Russian Orthodox Cathedral in Los Angeles, Archpriest Nazari Polataiko. During the panikihida, Cossacks and members of all military organizations that existed in Los Angeles were commemorated along with Russian soldiers, in particular, the Cossack-mountain village and the Gallipoli Society, many of whom were the founders and parishioners of our Cathedral. Parishioners and representatives of all the above-mentioned public organizations gathered next to the monument to the Russian veterans of the World War I, which is located at the church premises. American and Russian Empire flags were installed at the monument, which was established after the closure of the Society of Russian Veterans in Los Angeles.*

Thank you to all those who took time to come and clean the church for the Nativity Feast. The numbers were few, but much was accomplished. The candle stands gleam, the wood shines, the brass and silver pieces sparkle.  We sincerely appreciate all the effort that was put into this bi-annual event.
