On Sunday, 20 January 2019, Father Roman Kavchak with the Slavonic faithful of Seoul held a pilgrimage tour to the Holy Transfiguration of the Savior Monastery in Kapyeong.

The faithful participated in the Matins and the Divine Liturgy officiated by Metropolitan Soterios of Pisidia, after which they went to the nearby river and held the Holy Water sanctification Ceremony and the throwing of the Holy Cross into the river.

Then they all went to the Monastery where they had the Agape meal and listened to spiritual counsels by His Eminence Metropolitan Soterios.  In the afternoon they left the Holy Monastery and came back to Seoul with feelings of deep joy and happiness.
