About All Saints Russian Orthodox Church
In the parish of the city of Fargo, Thank God, everything is going very well. Parishioners of the parish, attend all the services, put a lot of time to improve the Church. We knew, just a few months ago, the Church was empty and abandoned, without irons and altar and almost all were convinced that any Church or parish no longer exists. Now every Liturgy is going to 20-35 members. Was conducted 5 baptisms, and it is the main indicator of the present, internal, blessed strengthening of the parish.
Last week I visited the Church along with the priest John Komisarchuk. We have almost completed all the repairs that still had to put the Church in proper form. We “sewed” the special wooden inside the altar the whole iconostasis; finished parquet coating inside the altar; build a special room for vestments. We hung the church chandelier (panicadilo).
We completed a kitchen with new cabinets and all necessary equipment, we put new plumbing in both bathrooms, built shower camera. At the entrance to the Church has planted two trees. We made a fence for Parking lot, preventing the entry of other machines that are constantly used our Parking lot to avoid a traffic light. Everything was done by our own forces, with the participation of the parishioners. And I thanks again father John Komisarchuk for his help.
Everyone who sees the Church today can’t believe what a terrible state she was recently!
Currently, a marble plaque with the name of the Church is almost finished. It will be hung at the entrance to the Church on the day of the expected arrival of the Archbishop Peter at 18 June. I want to say again that the Church today is in very good condition. Let’s hope that God will find in this parish a good priest, which will support both the parish and the Church in good condition. It would be desirable that the priest would speak the Russian language. Of course, I will support him with all my strength and every second Saturday will continue to go to Fargo to conduct services.
