MOSCOW, May 2 (RIA Novosti) - Patriarch of Moscow and All Russia Alexy II, who returned recently from a holiday in Switzerland, has conducted a communion service at a Moscow convent, a RIA Novosti correspondent said Wednesday.

The Patriarch of Russia's Orthodox Church, whose absence at ex-President Boris Yeltsin's funeral raised concerns about his health, has been undergoing routine medical treatment in Switzerland, a source in the Moscow Patriarchate said.

In an interview with another source last Friday Alexy II, 78, said his plans for future services had not changed.
