On January 15, 2020, the ELCIR congregation in Petrozavodsk hosted an interdenominational meeting of pastors and other religious servants based in the city, unofficially called Pastors’ Breakfast. The attendance included representatives of the Roman Catholic Church and various Protestant church bodies.
Rev. Aleksei Kronholm, senior pastor, ELCIR congregation in Petrozavodsk: “This is the first time Pastors’ Breakfast is held at our congregation. The chief goal of this meeting is to strengthen the existing relations among the church bodies and to use this opportunity to learn from others’ experience, to share about important concerns of the church bodies in our city, to discuss the possibilities of doing projects together, and to spend time in prayer together.”
Plans are made to make such meetings a tradition and to further collaboration.
