and Communities of the Russian Church Abroad to Conduct Plate Collections
for the Victims of Beslan
With the blessing
of His Eminence Metropolitan Laurus, the Synodal Chancery issued
a circular ukase to all the Diocesan Bishops on the call to prayer
"for the innocent Orthodox Christians killed by Agarians"
and for those injured and the relatives of the victims of the terrorist
act in Beslan. This ukase also gives the blessing to conduct plate
collections in the near future in all the parishes and communities
of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia to benefit the
victims. Collected funds should be sent to their Diocesan Administrations,
and from there to the Synod of Bishops.
