Chapter Summary

This chapter describes a particular case of a joint international activity, that of the small Orthodox youth community in Kazan'. The first section deals with the community in Kazan' Orthodox environment; and the second part of the chapter presents the "Syndesmos experience". The community is based in St Serafim Sarovskii parish in Kazan' which was established in 1999, but the intensive missionary and social activity has begun in 2005, when the main Church of St Serafim was constructed. The cultural life of the community is one of the largest spheres of youth activism at the parish and includes different directions. The Youth Fellowship's everyday religious, educational, cultural and leisure life is organized and managed firstly by him or by Fr Sergei, to whom Fr Dmitrii Salkov has delegated some of the duties. Without a permanent involvement or efforts from Fr Dmitrii, they most probably could not continue their Syndesmos-related activity.
