The establishment of Christianity in Russia under Saint Grand Duke Vladimir of Kiev was preceded by the reign of Grand Duchess Olga, who in the ancient times was called the root of orthodoxy. Olga occured as the morning sunrise before the day for the holy light of faith in Christ – the Sun of Righteousness, shines like the moon in the darkness of the night, that is, in the darkness of idolatry, covering the Russian land. During her reign in Russia, the seeds of the Christian faith were successfully implanted.

On July 24th our church served the Divine Liturgy and public prayer saint.
