Strasbourg, March 30, Interfax - Central tent, cylinder and golden domes with crosses were set up on a Russian church of All Saints in Strasbourg.

They were made in Moscow and brought to France in disassembled form in three trucks. Assembling of the domes took several weeks and took place in a town of Esho not far from Strasbourg, the parochial press service reports.

Representative of the Russian Church to the Council of Europe, rector of the church Hegumen Philip (Ryabykh) consecrated the tent, domes and the crosses, officials of the building companies involved in the construction attended the ceremony.

The building is carried out only on private donations. Today about 2,000 people from the whole world and several Russian companies contributed in erecting the church.

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.
