On Wednesday April 8/21, Archimandrite Roman (Krassovsky) served the Liturgy of the Presanctified Gifts in the chapel of St. John the Baptist in Jericho. On the territory of the land, bought by Archimandrite Anthony (Kapustin), live members of both Russian missions, Moscow and ROCOR.

Priests of the REM MP regularly serve there, and the ROCOR clergy serve once a month. Nun Parasceva and nun Athanasia from ROCOR residents were present at the service, and nun Lukina, the caretaker of the area, and nun Juliania with the laborers, also prayed. The sisters of the Community of the Resurrection of Christ in Bethany came to the services and sang the Liturgy.
