On April 14, 2020, Holy Tuesday, His Beatitude Metropolitan Tikhon spoke by phone from his residence at the Monastery of Saint Tikhon of Zadonsk with His All-Holiness, Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew of Constantinople.

His Beatitude extended greetings to His All-Holiness for a blessed continuation of Holy Week, and a joyful and spiritually fulfilling Great and Holy Pascha.

His All-Holiness extended the same greetings to Metropolitan Tikhon, and warmly remembered the visit of Metropolitan Tikhon to Constantinople and Cappadocia last summer. 

Metropolitan Tikhon and His All-Holiness shared with each other information related to the response of their churches to the COVID-19 pandemic on the synodal and parochial level.

His Beatitude and His All-Holiness exchanged final greetings for mutual health and well being.
