First Church Dedicated to the Royal Family in Moscow to Be Consecrated in May team | 23 March 2021

The first church in honor of the Holy Royal Martyrs, erected in the Yasenevo area in the north of Moscow, is planned to be consecrated with a great rite in May of this year, said the curator of the Program 200, deputy Vladimir Resin.

“The builders will complete the improvement of the territory of the complex by the end of April. It will be necessary to make landscaping and lay paving slabs. The great consecration of the church will be carried out after the completion of these works. The church and the parish house are fully completed and are ready for the upcoming solemn ceremony,” said Vladimir Resin during a special meeting, reports the Interfax-Religion.

This church with a capacity of 250 people was founded in the year of the 400th anniversary of the House of Romanov. The construction site was visited by the Grand Duchess Maria Vladimirovna.

According to the “Program 200”, this church is the first in the capital, which is dedicated to the holy royal family, and the first church in the Northern Administrative District, which was erected within the framework of the program.

In total 1,161,000 people live in this district today, and six new churches are being built there under the Program 200.

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 -,, and 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.
