On June 25, 2020, the head of the Moscow Patriarchate office for the institutions abroad and Patriarchal Exarch for Western Europe Metropolitan Anthony of Chersonesus and Western Europe made a brief working visit to the Principality of Monaco where he met with the head of the local diocese of the Roman Catholic Church, Archbishop Dominique-Marie David. 

Participating in their talk, which took place at the Archbishop’s Palace, were Archpriest Vadim Zakrevsky, rector of the Parish of the Royal Passion-Bearers in Monaco, and lay members of the parish council.

Metropolitan Anthony conveyed to Archbishop David best regards from His Holiness Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and All Russia and extended warm congratulations on his enthronement to the see of Monegasque hierarchs, which took place a few months earlier.

The Patriarchal Exarch also spoke about the history and today’s situation of the Russian parish in Monaco established with a blessing of His Holiness over two years ago.

In his turn, Archbishop David greeted the guests and expressed joy over the presence of a Russian Orthodox community in Monaco.

Then they discussed various matters of mutual concern and exchanged tokens of the meeting.
