Construction of New Muscovite Churches Discussed

A meeting to discuss the construction of 200 new parish churches in Moscow, which represent roughly a fifth of the total churches destroyed in the area by the Soviets, has been held under Patriarch Kirill (Gundyayev) of Moscow. As things currently stand the city center has an adequate number of churches for its residents, but on the whole metro Moscow has one church for every 35,000 Orthodox Christians. More (in Russian) here.
