Orthodox Church in the name of St. Vasily the Great to be built at Sledjuki agritownship of Bykhov district

Orthodox Church in the name of St. Vasily the Great will be built at Sledjuki agritownship of Bykhov district by Vasily Baranchuck, general director of “Barro”, a native of the village. For a good cause Vasily Anatolievich asked a blessing from Seraphim, bishop Bobruisk and Bykhov.

This year a cross was set and sanctified in Molodziozhnaya street, opposite the civil cemetery, where the church is to be built. The three-domed church is likely to be built from Siberian larch and will be 15 meters high. Construction documents have been undergoing an examination.

“All 747 people from Sledjuki, as well as 996 and 500 people living at Godylevo and Voronino respectively, have been looking forward to constructing and opening the church”, - Zhanna Kirillova, chairman of Sledjuki agricultural executive committee, told. “Last year an Orthodox community was organized in the agritownship. Thus, many people are interested in having a church there”.

The need of rising generation into spiritual food has been proved by the results of this year’s contest of essays “Faith in my heart” held by Sts. Methodius and Cyril Theology Institute of the Belarusian State University, in which pupils of the local school partook. Thus, Peter Ryabtsev, a pupil of the 11th form, was awarded the first prize, and Alina Kirillova from the 7th form was expressed gratitude.
