On August 24th, Metropolitan Hilarion (ALFEYEV), head of the Department of External Affairs of the Moscow Patriarchate, visited the diocesan chancery in San Francisco. Archbishop Benjamin greeted His Eminence at the doors of the cathedral, and told him of the history of the oldest Orthodox parish in the lower 48 while the Metropolitan venerated the vestments of St Tikhon of Moscow and the pectoral cross of St Philip of Moscow.

Afterwards the two hierarchs enjoyed a private, fraternal conversation in the chancery.
