This monastery is one of the monasteries under the jurisdiction of the Holy Metropolis of France.
The Metropolitan was welcomed by Elder Emiliani and her entourage.
Archbishop Job of Telmessos and Bishop Maximos of Melitini was prayerfully attending in the altar.
The holy relics of Saint Alexis Medvedkov (Saint Alexis d’Ugine – Алексей Иванович Медведков) are kept in the monastery.
In his homily, the Metropolitan of France, among other things, referred to the Virgin Mary and stressed: “The Virgin Mary is above all an instrument of the Divine Economy and her participation in the salvation work of God has been decisive. She is the one who gave birth to God Who would become a flesh-and-blood human being.”
