The Andrey and Julia Dashin’s Foundation supported the construction of the Russian Orthodox Church in Limassol
The construction of the Russian Orthodox Church in Cyprus began in 1997 when the St. Nicholas Foundation was created to raise funds for the construction of the cathedral. In 2009, Patriarch Kirill blessed the plan to build a church in Limassol. A bell tower was then erected in 2017, followed by the cathedral that same year.
The Church of St. Nicholas the Wonderworker is being built in the traditional 17th-century Russian architectural style in Germasogeia, at 1/1 Mitropolitou Nikodimou Rotof. The cathedral is designed to accommodate 1,000 people, and the area of the parish center will be 1,200 square meters.
According to the project, the church will provide Sunday school classes, a refectory, a church shop, an assembly hall, a playground, and a pilgrimage hotel. The complex will also offer access for people with disabilities.
The St. Nicholas Foundation asked to support the construction of the church with the installation of a marble floor and the purchase of material for it. The Andrey and Julia Dashin’s Foundation donated in January 2021. Ten years ago, spouses already helped the Russian church: in 2011, using personal funds, they restored the Church of Gurias of Kazan in Tatarstan.
In April, Andrey Dashin and his daughter came to visit the construction site.
We are looking forward to the completion of the project!
