Amen to all that! Three churches built in 24 hours
Construction teams used modern technologies, which make the building process faster and cheaper. The churches were built from special wooden blocks and the cost of each is estimated to be three or four times lower than that of its traditional counterpart.
According to Vladimir Mikov, of the Russian Orthodox Philanthropist Club sponsoring the event, the Moscow part of the project is estimated at a little more than 40 thousand euros.
“In times of financial crisis we do not think about porcelain iconostasis, rather our project wants to make good the deficit of churches in remote districts,” he said.
The churches were erected in areas of the cities where there are no churches. It’s hoped it will help satisfy the spiritual hunger many Russians still feel after years of Soviet atheism.
