The Holy Fire Delivered to Moscow

The delegation of the Foundation of Saint Andrew the First-Called delivered the Holy Fire to Moscow from the Church of the Resurrection of Christ in Jerusalem.
Hundreds of believers welcomed the Holy Fire at Vnukovo International Airport. They could get parts of the Holy Fire in order to bring it to their homes and churches. The sacred fire was delivered in special oil-lamps by a dedicated plane.
The Holy Fire will be delivered for the Easter Service held at the Cathedral of Christ the Savior where Patriarch Kirill will distribute the parts of the Fire from the Holy Land among believers.

The Holy Fire is distributed across thousands of churches in Russia, neighbor countries and beyond. During the Holy Week (the first week following the Easter) anybody can obtain the Holy Fire at the office of the Foundation of Saint Andrew the First-Called in Moscow. In order to do so one should bring an oil-lamp to the office located at: 42 Pokrovka St., b.5 (from 9.00 a.m. till 6.00 p.m.).
