      Archbishop Venyamin consecrated the temple of the Holy Great Martyr
      George the Conquerer

      Pogranichnoye[1]. On May 27th, Archbishop Venyamin of Vladivostok and
      Primorye, together with local clergy, performed the rite of Great
      Consecration of the temple of the Holy Great Martyr George the
      Conqueror and served the first Divine Liturgy at the Russian-Chinese
      border.

      The temple is built in the vicinity of the "Sosnovaya Pad'" border
      passage for automobiles, on the territory of the international trade
      complex. Representatives of military border forces headed by
      Lieutenant General Vladimir Lakizo were present at the celebration.
      Since the celebration took place the day before the "Border Guards'
      Day", his Eminence served a moleben in honor of the border forces and
      extended greetings on the 88th anniversary of the border forces,
      wishing them outstanding service for the good of the Fatherland.

      Holiday guests included the representatives of the mayoralty of the
      adjoining Chinese city of Suifenhe. The temple was filled to capacity
      during the divine service.

      After the celebration which took place in the temple of St. George the
      Conqueror, Archbishop Venyamin, accompanied by its rector, priest Lev
      Kalachikov, visited the temple of the Dormition of the Theotokos in
      the Pogranichnoye settlement and, in the evening, served the all night
      vigil for a great number of parishioners of the temple. Vladyka
      Venyamin extended Holy Paschal greetings to the residents of
      Pogranichnoye, proclaiming to them the traditional "Christ is Risen!"
