It is expected that the first divine service will be celebrated there on the Nativity of Christ, State Duma MP, curator of building new churches Vladimir Resin told Interfax-Religion after visiting the building site during his traditional tour.

“The church is erected almost by hands, without industrial methods, in a way they used to build hundred years ago. Walls are a meter and a half thick. Facades are decorated with complicated mosaics icons,” Resin said.

According to him, the rector and parishioners love the project. “They told me that local residents voluntarily refused to build garages there in order to save space for building the church,” the MP noted.

The church was built on individual project, in style of the Russian modern. Its walls are white, the cupolas and roof are colored blue, symbolic color of the Holy Virgin.
