Thousands of faithful, with many members of the clergy, vicar bishops, and Metropolitan Agafangel of Odessa and Izmail, walked in a procession in the streets of Izmail, in the region of Odessa. The event took place on March 27, 2019, the day of the feast of the miraculous Feodorovskaya Icon of the Mother of God, whose original is kept in Kostroma, Russia.  
The procession began after the Divine Liturgy celebrated in the Cathedral of the Protection of the Mother of God in Izmail. The faithful with the Feodorovskaya icon and other holy objects headed towards the cross erected on the territory of former St. Nicholas monastery.
During the procession, on a route of almost two miles and a half, prayers were raised for peace in Ukraine, stability in the Odessa region, and the prosperity of Izmail.
The celebration ended with an intercessory service to the Mother of God, and a homily given by Metropolitan Agafangel of Odessa and Izmail.
