NEW TREES ARE PLANTED IN THE DEMAND OF THE HOLY THEORY IN M. DNEPRO AND A GOOD TRADITION IS CONTINUED.
There is a good tradition in the temple complex of the Dnieper Diocese of the Orthodox Church of Ukraine "Christmas of the Blessed Virgin". New trees are planted here every spring and thus decorate the spiritual and cultural center of the city of Dnipro. On the territory of the temple complex have already been planted more than 100 trees of different breeds. Together with the plants and shrubs, they create a unique cozy ecological atmosphere in the complex and usually delight numerous parishioners and residents of the regional center. And on this day, on May 15, 2019, with the blessing of Bishop Simeon, with the support of the patron of the diocese, the president of the International Charitable Foundation "Solidarity" Alexander Petrovsky, another good and useful action was held and new trees were planted. Alexander together with the clergy, headed by the rector of the temple complex of the Dnieper Eparchy of the Orthodox Church of Ukraine, "Nativity of the Blessed Virgin", Archpriest Vitaliy Lopushansky, and friends with children and families - all planted trees near the temple.
Father Vitaliy consecrated the trees, read the prayer and blessed the good deed. And our well-known Dnipro athlete, Champion and World and European Swimming Champion Andriy Govorov also took part in the action. For him, this temple complex is special, because he is his parishioner and it was here that he baptized his child. It so happened that immediately after the prestigious international competitions, Andrei was able to visit his hometown and his native temple and together with Alexander Petrovsky, with his friends, took part in a good cause.
The event ended with communication and shared photos. Recall that this temple complex is always open to visitors. On its territory there is a temple, two baptisms, a monument to the fallen heroes of Ukraine, a Sunday school, a children's playground and a rest area. That is why many Dnieper people always come here with their children.
