The Military Institute (Engineering and Technical) of the Military Academy of MTO named after General of the Army A. V. Khrulev in St. Petersburg celebrated the day of memory of the heavenly patron saint of the army of material and technical support, Saint Reverend Joseph of Volotsk.

On the parade ground of the Military Institute (Engineering and Technical), the personnel, led by Chief Major General Sergei Rikhel, to the chime of bells, met the image of Saint Reverend Joseph Volotsky presented to the Military Academy of MTO by the Deputy Minister of Defense of the Russian Federation, General of the Army Dmitry Bulgakov in 2019.

Priest Yevgeny, an assistant to the head of the institute for work with believing military personnel, accompanied by a cadet choir, served a prayer service, and during the removal of the icon along the building of the institute, sprinkling of the personnel was carried out.

The memorable day of the Monk Joseph of Volotsk is full of information events about the life and exploits of the saint, which are held today both in the church by the rector Priest Eugene, and in the subdivisions by representatives of the department of humanitarian disciplines, as well as members of the Orthodox circle functioning at the institute.
