Metropolitan Hilarion – Honorary Patron of the Museum of Russian Culture in San Francisco


On July 20, 2008 in reply to a request from the Council of Directors of the Museum of Russian Culture in San Francisco His Eminence Metropolitan Hilarion, the Head of the Russian Orthodox Church Abroad, sent a written confirmation to become the Honorary Patron of our Museum.

The Museum of Russian Culture was founded with the support of the Russian Orthodox Church. Metropolitan Anastasii and Metropolitan Leontii both were amongst the Museum’s first Honorary Patrons.

The blessing and support of His Eminence Metropolitan Hilarion at this very difficult time for the Museum is a great joy for all of us. The Metropolitan Hilarion’s letter is attached.

Letter from Metropolitan Hilarion.
