The trip of Metropolitan Valentine to the USA (May-June 2005)

At the grave of Bishop Gregory Grabbe.


At St. Barbaras Monastery, Middletown, New Jersey.

Left to right: Hegumen Andrew (Maklakov), Protopriest Vladimir (Shishkov), Metropolitan Valentine and Archimandrite Ephraem, abbot of St. Barbaras Monastery.


Vladyka and Father Andrew Maklakov at the Atlantic ocean in New York. Very few of the Russians have seen the ocean in their lives, so it is always very inspiring for us.


At the St. Nicholas parish in Elmwood Park, New Jersey. Bishop Anthony Grabbe sits next to Vladyka. Also you can see here Anastasia Georgievna Shatilova, the publisher of the "Church news". This is that wonderful smiling lady, fourth from the left in the upper raw.
