The first stone church to be built at Ganina Yama will be named in honour of the Reigning Mother of God. The foundation stone for the new church was laid on March 15th, by Archbishop Vincent, followed by the laying of a commemorative plaque.
The church is being erected on the site of a wooden church that was destroyed by fire in September, 2010. The new church will also house a memorial museum dedicated to Tsar Nicholas II and his family.
