Cupolas mounted on the Cathedral of Kursk-Root Hermitage (Photo-report)
The Editors are offering our readers a photo-report on an important event--the mounting of cupolas over the Cathedral of the Nativity of the Most-Holy Mother of God in Kursk-Root Hermitage. In a recent interview, His Eminence Archbishop German of Kursk and Rylsk noted that the Kursk Diocese strove to fulfill the first condition set by the late Metropolitan Laurus of blessed memory for the visit of the Kursk-Root Icon of the Mother of God to Russia--that the Cathedral in Kursk Monastery, which was destroyed in 1923, be restored. The next session of the Synod of Bishops of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia, scheduled for May, will discuss the organization of the visit of the Icon to Russia.
