Think they got their months mixed up on this report.  But here is the schedule.  Just transpose July back to June.

Orthodox residents of Riga Latvia welcomed the Tikhvin icon.  The

JULY 23, 2004:  Patriarch Alexy will serve the all-night vigil at
Christ the Savior Cathedral/Moscow and participate in welcoming the
Tikhvin icon, considered to be the protectress of the northwestern
territories of Russia.

JULY 27, 2004:  Patriarch Alexy will serve a molebel before the
Tikhvin icon and lead a procession through Red Square to the Iversk
Chapel, and there will bless the city of Moscow before the icon
departs for St. Petersburg.
Oh Lord, Save thy people and bless thine inheritance.
Grant victory to the Orthodox Christians over their adversaries.
And by virtue of thy Cross preserve thy habitation.
