Metropolitan LAURUS, first Hierarch of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia, has fallen asleep in the Lord.
May his memory be eternal!
I understand that His Eminence served the Presanctified Liturgy in Jordanville on Friday, and fell asleep in the Lord (in his sleep) this morning, the Sunday of the Triumph of Orthodoxy.
More details forthcoming … HERE and elsewhere.
UPDATE: Video news …
