Temple construction in Khotkovo

On August 1, 2010, which was the day of the finding of the relics of St. Seraphim of Sarov, a prayer was held for the beginning of temple construction in a small town of Khotkovo in the Moscow region. Locals have been wishing for this temple for a long time. The local administration allocated the land, the commission of the Sergiyev Posad deanery of Moscow diocese approved the choice of location, and high regional church officials gave their blessing for establishing the parish. The Temple of St. Seraphim of Sarov is being built without any finance from the state budget, solely on donations from the congregation and private donators, including Glorax, which supports the construction of the temple from the moment of laying the foundational stone.
