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.
