On Sunday, October 29, 2017, His Grace Bishop Theodosius of Seattle, First Vicar of the Western American Diocese of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia, celebrated Divine Liturgy at SS Peter and Paul Church in Santa Rosa, CA. Fourteen families of the parish and of St Seraphim of Sarov of the Orthodox Church in America lost their homes and property.
