The restored church in Blagoveshensk is 20 years old

author: Irene Bakke

The church in the town of Blagoveshensk, Bashkiria, celebrates the 20th anniversary of its restoration. The church, erected under the local brass works on the bank of Potekha-river (on the territory of modern Blagoveshensky region RB) in 1783 was sanctified as the Annunciation Godmother Church. Great number of people gathered to take part in the festive solemn service in the restored church and the parishioners took part in the religious procession around the church.

The Sunday school, where about 20 children study, works under the church and now they are preparing the theatrical performance, dedicated to the forthcoming Easter. The Easter festive actions will be devoted to the jubilee of the restored church.
