A capsule was laid in the city of Dnipro.
On July 11, 2016, a capsule was laid in the foundation of the church under construction in honor of the icon of the Blessed Virgin Mary "Unexpected Joy" of the city of Dnipro. Recall that on April 8, 2016, the Holy Patriarch of Kyiv and All Russia-Ukraine Filaret came to our city. On that day, His Holiness Patriarch Filaret consecrated the premise of the Diocese of Dnepropetrovsk, which is located at 3 Sechovyh Streltsov St. (former Artem). At the same time, the issue of construction in the inner court of the diocese of the temple was discussed.
After the visit of the Holy Patriarch, construction and repair work began on the restoration of the premises of the Diocese of Dnepropetrovsk and the construction of a new church.
On July 11, 2016, at the place of the future church there was a worship service, attended by Bishop of Dnepropetrovsk and Kryvorizhsky Simeon, Bishop of Luhansk and Starobelsky, Athanasius, patron of art Alexander Petrovsky, clergymen of Dnepropetrovsk parish, invited guests. Then the capsule itself was inserted with the text:
"In the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
This church was founded in honor and memory of the icon of the Blessed Virgin Mary Unexpected Joy, the Holy Patriarch of Kiev and all Russia-Ukraine Filaret and Bishop of Dnepropetrovsk and Kryvorizh Simeon, patron of the temple Petrovsky Alexander Vladimirovich June 2016. Amen. "
Bishop Simeon noted that this temple would be another attraction of the city. That at a time when such aggression is coming from Russia, the temple in honor of the icon of the Blessed Virgin Mary "Unexpected Joy" will become a temple of reconciliation, that this temple should become native to all.
