      Church building granted to Orthodox community in Palermo
      Palermo, Italy, April 22, 2013

      The municipal authorities of the city of Palermo have resolved to grant
      use of a former church building to the Russian Orthodox Church in
      Palermo. The church is dedicated to St. Alexander, but for the past ten
      years has been used to house an art academy for religious art restoration.

      The final agreement is scheduled to be signed in June, 2013, stated
      Alexander Lvovich Korotkov, General Consul of the Russian Federation in
      Palermo on Friday.

      The church also has an adjoining building, which the community of the
      Russian Orthodox Church in Palermo plans to use as a cultural center and
      Sunday school.
