      A new Russian church to be constructed in Argentina
      Moscow, November 7, Interfax - The delegation of the Moscow Patriarchate and the Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia visited the construction site of a Russian church in Mar Del Plata, Argentina, during the Days of Russian Culture in Latin America.

      The first Russian church was constructed in Buenos Aires at the expense of the Tsar family in late 19th century. Eventually, it has become "the center of Russian Orthodoxy" and the heart of spiritual life of Russian emigrants. According to Metropolitan, Russian compatriots must now construct another church in Argentina, which is this time dedicated to the Royal Martyrs, the Moscow Patriarchate official website reports Friday.

      Metropolitan Hilarion, First Hierarch of the ROCOR, compared members of the Orthodox community in Mar Del Plata with the emigrants who arrived to Latin America many decades ago and began from constructing churches. Metropolitan Hilarion believes, that was the reason why Russians managed to preserve their identity in conditions of mixed marriages and hard life in a foreign country.

      The church in the Alfar district is located 15 kilometers from the city center and 1.5 km from the sea. The construction is planned to be finished by the end of 2009.
