Delivering the miracle-working icon of the Dormition of the Mother of God from Pyukhtitsy to Tallinn

25.03.2016

On 25 March 2016, Friday, the yearly delivery of the miracle-working icon of the Dormition of the Mother of God from Pyukhtitsy to Tallinn took place. The event was accompanied by Abbess Filareta and nuns.

The icon was brought in early in the morning, before the morning service. Cornelius, Metropolitan of Tallinn and All Estonia, headed the prayer to the Mother of God, which was followed by a special service. Then, during entire day, all the parishes of Tallinn made their prayers with the Akathist hymn. A great many pilgrims attended the cathedral on that day.

The yearly tradition of bringing the icon of the Dormition of the Mother of God to Tallinn from Pyukhtitsy was resumed by blessing of His Holiness Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and All Russia in 2013.
