      An Orthodox transformer church in Volgograd

      Moscow, May 15, Interfax - A first mobile church has been tested in
      Volgograd. It can be easily moved from one place to another.

      The church of the Protecting Veil has been designed by local
      specialists at the diocese's commission. It will be consecrated this
      week and handed over to the Church, Izvestia daily has reported on
      Monday.

      The movable church has already been taken on test missions within
      the city. `Everything works as it should', Yury Yeremin, the
      project's chief engineer and designer, said.

      The church can be packed up in four containers that can go into a 12-
      meter van. In this way it can reach any remote village by earth
      roads. Joined like a transformer, the blocks, crowned with a cupola
      and a cross, can be carried and assembled by three persons within
      three hours and can accommodate 120 people.

      `Movable churches do not differ in status in any way from stationary
      ones because when founded they have `a residence' as well and are
      consecrated', Volgograd diocesan press secretary Sergey Ivanov said.

      The church has a sanctuary, a choir place and a porch. The clergy
      are provided with a three-bed cell room, a library and hot and cold
      water facilities.
