HM the king of Sweden visited an Orthodox church in Villlmanstrand. Fr. Timo served a short prayer service and the choir sang many years to His Majesty. The king and the queen received two hand-painted icons of Our Lady of Konevets as a gift from the parish.



Last time a head of state visited this church was in 1891. The head of state was tsar Alexander III.

The beautiful phelonion and the dark purple kamilavka go well with the Nordic Cross flag of Sweden.

Do not be cast down over the struggle - the Lord loves a brave warrior. The Lord loves the soul that is valiant.
