Gifts of the Three Wise Men travel to Simferopol
Today the Diocese of Simferopol and Crimea welcomes the Gifts of the Three Wise Men. The relic will be brought to Holy Trinity nunnery located in the center of the Crimean capital.
The relic is accompanied by a delegation of monks from the St. Paul Monastery on the Holy Mt. Athos headed by Archimandrite Parfeniy (Murelatos), reports the press service of the Diocese of Simferopol and Crimea.
The ark with the Gifts of the Three Wise Men left the walls of the monastery for the first 500 years and has already visited Moscow, St. Petersburg, Minsk and Kiev.
On Saturday, the relic will be brought to Sevastopol, but so far, it is unknown whether the trip will take place as harsh weather — wind, ice and severe frosts — complicate movement in the Crimea.
As was reported, due to bad weather, the plane with the relic cannot land in Simferopol and has to fly to Sevastopol, with subsequent travel to the capital of the autonomy.
