On February 1, on the occasion of the 10th anniversary of the enthronement of Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and all Russia, the Primate of the Russian Orthodox Church himself concelebrated the Divine Liturgy in the Cathedral of Christ the Savior in Moscow, with the primates and representatives of the local, autonomous, and self-governing Orthodox churches of the Patriarchate of Moscow, with members of the Holy Synod, with heads of metropolitan dioceses, and with a large number of hierarchs and clerics of the Russian Orthodox Church.

The service was presided by Patriarch John X of Antioch and All the East, by Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and all Russia, by Patriarch Irinej of Serbia, by Metropolitan Rostislav of the Czech Lands and Slovakia, and by Metropolitan Tikhon of all America and Canada (OCA).

The Churches of Alexandria, Georgia, Rumania, Bulgaria, and Poland, were each represented by a metropolitan or archbishop.
There were no delegations of the following local Orthodox Churches: Greece, Albania, Cyprus, Jerusalem (however, the Archimandrite who represents the Patriarchate of Jerusalem in Moscow was there), and Constantinople.

The following were also present at the liturgical service: Celestino Migliore, the Apostolic Nuncio to the Russian Federation; the delegation of the Armenian Apostolic Church led by Archbishop Yeznik, the President of this Church’s Department of External Affairs; the WCC delegation led by Rev. Olav Fykse Tvei, its secretary general; and the delegation of the People’s Republic of China.

The singing was performed by the patriarchal choir of the Cathedral of Christ the Savior and the choir of the Trinity Lavra of St. Sergius. The blessings and prayers were said in Slavonic, Arabic, and English. The homily before the communion was given by Archbishop Antony of Vienna and Budapest, the head of the Moscow Patriarchate’s Office for Foreign Institutions.

The full video is available here.

At the end of the Divine Liturgy, Patriarch John X of Antioch and All the East read a message of congratulations and gave Patriarch Kirill a patriarchal pastoral staff made in Damascus.
Metropolitan Onufriy of Kyiv and All Ukraine read a message of congratulations on behalf of the Holy Synod of the Russian Orthodox Church, and handed the Russian primate two engolpia and a pectoral cross. Then, Patriarch Kirill of Moscow addressed the participants.
