This month marks 100 years from the tragic events that followed the February and October revolutions of 1917 in Russia.  The abdication of Czar was remembered in March.  The upcoming centenary of sorrowful events will be marked by a series of reflections.

  • On Tuesday 7 November on the eve of the commemoration of the Great Martyr Dimitrius, at the conclusion of vespers and matins, a panikhida will be served to all who perished under the godless powers of the Bolshevik state

  • On Sunday November 12 in the evening, a vigil to St. John Kochurov who labored for the spread of Orthodoxy, including here in Chicago, and who was one of the first clerics to be martyred on Oct 31 (old sytel) 1917 in Tsarskoe Syelo.

  • On Sunday November 19 following the Liturgy a visual/musical presentation entitled "The Space of Sorrow" will illustrate Russia's sorrowful journey from 1917 to our times
