      A Russian Orthodox church to be built in Mongolia

      Ulan Bator, September 5, Interfax - Rev. Alexy Trubach, rector of the
      Parish of the Holy Trinity in Ulan Bator, appealed to Mongolian President
      Nambar Enkhbayar to give financial support for the construction of a new
      Orthodox church dedicated to the Holy Trinity.

      During his meeting with Father Alexy, Enkhbayar supported the idea,
      pointing to the ages-old relations between the Mongolian state and Russia.

      The Parish of the Holy Trinity has been so far the only Orthodox parish in
      the country. About one thousand believers who reside or work in Mongolia
      come to it annually. It was opened in 1864 at the Church of the Life-giving
      Trinity at the Russian consulate. After the 1917 Revolution it stopped
      functioning and was re-opened only in 1998.
