St. Petersburg Officially Celebrates Its Patron Saints

This year marks the first time in recent history that St. Petersburg, Russia's northern capital, has officially celebrated the feast day of its patron saints, Sts. Peter and Paul. Festal services were celebrated at the imperial crypt, the Cathedral of Sts. Peter and Paul on Hare Island, after which a procession was held from the cathedral to St. Isaac's Cathedral nearby. More (in Russian) here.
