Our website and in particular this page dedicated to the Churches in Antarctica is now home of a very special reportage from a very special guest, the Mayor of Uvarovo City, Tambov Oblast, Russia.
Today we are grateful to Alex for his exclusive short report for the WAP pages. As the mayor of this City, Alexander Kuznetsov did bring with him, on his way to Antarctica, the Tambov “Mother of God” and “St. Pitirim” icons to be presented to the Holy Trinity Church, the only Russian Orthodox Church in Antarctica.
The pictures shown on this reportage, have been sent us by Alex to show some very important moments of his journey at the Trinity Church.
While Italy, one of the centers of world Christianity, is still waiting a small Chapel at his Antarctic Station down in the Icy Continent, we’re really looking for the day where, we can also be proud to celebrate something like this!
Thanks to Alexander Kuznetsov, for his great sign of holy spirituality. God bless you and your City, as well as the Russians who have built such a great Church in Antarctica.
