3054Church dedicated to the Tsarist martyrs
- Oct 30, 2000Dear Friends in Christ.
I am most pleased to be able
to tell you, that in the village
of Nikolskaya near St, Petersburg,
a Church has been erected
and dedicated to the Tsarmartyr Nikolaj
of Holy Russia !
The Church is in the ancient, wooden style
that so pleased the Tsarist Martyrs.
This is the first Church to be build and
dedicated to the Tsarmartyr after the canonization
by the Russian Orthodox Church
of the Tsar in August this year.
The Church is called "Tserkov Nikolaya Vtorogo"
(Church of Nikolaj the second)
Before the revolution here was another
Church, dedicated to St Nicholas the Wonderworker,
but it was destroyed by the godless communists.
The main priest of this new Church is presently the main
priest also serving in Feodorovsky Sobor in Tsarskoe Selo.
Holy Tsarmartyr Nikolaj!
Pray unto God for us sinners!
"Do not become a Disciple of one who
praises himself, in case you learn pride
instead of Humility."
(St. Mark the Ascetic)
