С 17 по 18 июля, Митрополит Агафангел посетил приходы в Бердянске на Украине, входящие в состав Одесской епархии РПЦЗ.

 From July 17 to 18, Metropolitan Agafangel visited the two parishes in Berdyansk, Ukraine, part of the Odessa diocese of the ROCA.
Поводом для визита послужило оконание строительных и отделочных работ в храме Святого мученика Иоанна воина, настоятелем которого является протоиерей Сергий Бегашов.

 The reason for the visit was the completion of construction and finishing works in the Church of St. John the Martyr, whose rector is Archpriest Sergiy Begashov.

Father Sergius as the protodeacon Michael Torba led the service of the Divine Liturgy, after which there was a cross- procession around the temple.

 После торжеств была приходская трапеза, за которой прихожане имели возможность пообщяться с вл.

After the liturgical celebrations, there was a parish meal, after which the parishioners had the opportunity to talk with ow. Агафангелом.  Vladyka Agafangel.

Then Vladyka visited the other Berdyansk parish, in honor of St. John Maksimovich, whose rector is Protopriest Oleg Nikolaev.

Там Митрополит Агафангел отслужил молебен, окропил стены храма Святой водой, пообщался с прихожанами и ответил на задаваемые вопросы.
