A prayer service was held in Strasbourg Monday on a plot of land where a Russian Orthodox church will be built.
It was dedicated to the transfer of this plot of land to the Orthodox community of Strasbourg for 99 years.
Earlier a draft project of the future church and a parish centre worked out by St. Petersburg architect Yuri Kirs was blessed by Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and All Russia.
The Strasbourg authorities gave their consent to the construction last December.

Since you are here…
…we do have a small request. More and more people visit Orthodoxy and the World website.
However, resources for editorial are scarce.
In comparison to some mass media, we do not make paid subscription.
It is our deepest belief that preaching Christ for money is wrong.
Having said that, Pravmir provides daily articles from an autonomous news service,
weekly wall newspaper for churches, lectorium, photos, videos, hosting and servers.
Editors and translators work together towards one goal: to make our four websites possible -
Pravmir.ru, Neinvalid.ru, Matrony.ru and Pravmir.com. Therefore our request for help is understandable.
For example, 5 dollars a month is it a lot or little?
A cup of coffee?
It is not that much for a family budget, but it is a significant amount for Pravmir.
If everyone reading Pravmir could donate 5 dollars a month,
they would contribute greatly to our ability to spread the word of Christ,
Orthodoxy, life's purpose, family and society.
