Here we get a rare glimpse into a Latin rite parish building in the Russian Federation which survived the 1917 Revolution.
The interior is being restored thanks in large part to the exceptional wisdom and talent of Matthew Alderman of the Shrine (http://holywhapping.blogspot.com/) who has given of himself pro bono.
Be a part of this historic renovation and give today: http://www.vladmission.org/. The renovation has been faithful to the harmony of the neo-Gothic design and some work remains yet to be done.
"They shall build up the ancient ruins, they shall raise up the former devastations; they shall repair the ruined cities, the devastations of many generations."
