Festivities devoted to honoring venerable Anthony of the Caves and the 30th anniversary of monastic life’s rebirth in the Lavra

This year is the 30th anniversary of the revival of monastic life in the Holy Dormition Kiev-Caves Lavra. This event as well as the commemoration of ”father of the ancient Rus’ monasticism” venerable Anthony of the Caves, whose dedication day is celebrated on July, 23, will be specially honored in our holy monastery.

The festivities will be heralded not only by the divine services performed by the hierarchy of the Lavra, the array of the archpriests joined by the priests of the Local Orthodox Churches, but also by memorable arrangements. Throughout the Lavra, the thematic exhibitions are planned to be open in the main churches of the monastery and the international forum is to be arranged.

On the memory day of our venerable and God-bearing father Anthony of the Caves, the Divine Liturgy will be performed in different churches of the monastery (including during the night), and in the evening before, the night vigil will be performed in the synodic order in the Dormition Cathedral.
