Ministry Updates: The Church of St. John of Shanghai and San Francisco

The building of the Church in honor of St. John of Shanghai and San Francisco is ongoing. The church is being constructed on the territory of the National Mental Health Centre. This church is very important not only for the people, who undergo treatment in the psychiatric clinic, but for their relatives as well. It will provide the patients of the center with an opportunity to visit the church with their friends and relatives, to attend at the Divine Liturgy, and to partake the Holy Communion in the real church, which will be close to the clinic. What is more, it is planned to organize there special handwork courses for the patients, who can face difficulties with returning to their previous work.
