The thanksgiving service on the occasion of the assumption of the office of the President RB by Rustem Khamitov has taken place in the churches of Ufa eparchy.
In the prayers the parishioners and the clergy asked strong health and every success for the good of Bashkortostan for the new leader of the region. Besides, the fact that the assumption of the office coincided with the celebration of the Ufa Godmother Icon appearance, happened in 1621, looked symbolically for the believers. This icon and the church, erected later on the place of its appearance, are especially respected in Ufa eparchy.
