21 Orthodox Churches to Open in Moscow this Year

Natalya Mihailova | 11 March 2018

21 church complexes will be built or put into operation in frames of Program-200 in Moscow during 2018, the State Duma deputy, curator of building new churches in the capital Vladimir Resin told Interfax-Religion.

The program of building new Orthodox churches started in Moscow in 2010 on Patriarch Kirill’s initiative and it is realized in all administrative districts except the Central District. Its goal is to build nearby churches in densely populated districts of the capital.

Meanwhile, 62 church complexes were built in Moscow for the last eight years (45 according to Program-200 and 17 – exceeding it). 38 complexes were put in operation, including six complexes in New Moscow. 31 program churches are under construction. 31 churches are designed, 12 churches are being prepared for construction.

Today, 231 lots of land are included in Program-200, 80 of them are at the stage of preliminary preparation of design projects.

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 euros 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 euros a month, they would contribute greatly to our ability to spread the word of Christ, Orthodoxy, life's purpose, family and society.
