Construction of many new churches in Moscowbecame possible due to the request of His Holiness Patriarch Kirill to the city authorities. The city administration in 2009 approved the development of the spiritual infrastructure and provided free land for the construction of church complexes. One of the two hundred new sanctuaries was the Church of the Archangel Michael in Tsaritsyno.
With the blessing of Archpriest Mikhail Shmanova decision was taken to transfer the church chapel to the new parish. Priest Father Peter Vinokurov, under the tutelage of which crossed the Church of Archangel Michael in Tsaritsyno, on behalf of the entire parish expressed deep gratitude for such a generous gift. The chapel, as planned, was installed at 11 Luganskaya Street. Father Mikhail also started from scratch in his day. Therefore, he understands the difficulties of the new parish. Once, in order to start religious activity faster, he, along with the believers, bought and installed a large military tent. She became his first church. People ordered church utensils and brought icons to start the worship as soon as possible.
Now on Shipbuilding street risesa beautiful stone church. And his first temporary shelter was decided to sacrifice to those who need it most. The Church of Archangel Michael in Tsaritsyno acquired his first chapel, and people - a spiritual shelter.
After all the necessary preparations, Father Peterasked the Holy Patriarch to bless to hold the Divine Liturgy. In the meantime, parishioners of Lugansk each Sunday at fourteen hours gather for a moleben.
On March 7, the first service in the Temple took placeArchangel Michael. It was conducted by Metropolitan Arseny. He also consecrated the crosses of the new house of God. Now every Sunday there is a moleben in the church, and on Saturday (at seventeen) the evening is scheduled.
The place for the spiritual center is chosen very well.Near the metro station and a large sleeping area of the city, also in plans to open the bus station. Proceeding from the above, the Church of St. Michael the Archangel will be very in demand, and the number of parishioners will increase steadily.
The program, which will be built around twohundreds of churches, is designed for the fact that in one parish there must be at least twenty thousand people, and they will live no more than 1 kilometer from the church. On February 23, 2014, a cross was solemnly installed on a small piece of land (0.39 ha). And the first prayer service was held.
I also wanted to note separately that the TempleArchangel Michael in Tsaritsyno is being built exclusively on the donations of parishioners and patrons of art. People who want to help in the process of erecting a shrine can visit the church site. There is full information about the donation procedure.
Summer is coming to an end, followed by autumn andwinter cold. Archpriest Peter Vinokurov has a great desire to create a more fundamental building before the arrival of winter. Let it so far there will be a structure made of sandwich panels, but it will be comfortable. Do not miss your chance to join the construction of the shrine, which will be proud of not only you, but your descendants.
