Dear Readers: A long time supporter of the Mystagogy Resource Center has informed me that they would like to donate $3000 to help me continue the work of this ministry, but they will only do it as a matching donation, which means that this generous donation will only be made after you help me raise a total of $3000. If you can help make this happen, it will be greatly appreciated and it would be greatly helpful to me, as I have not done a fundraiser this year. If you enjoy the work done here and want to see more of it, please make whatever contribution you can through the DONATE link below. Thank you!
(Total So Far - Day 8: $2640)

World's Largest Stone Cross Installed in Sevastopol

Jun 29, 2012

The 24-ton cross, made by Russian masters in the Urals as a gift to their fellow countrymen, stands in an open area near the Church of St. Nicholas so that all those willing can touch it and feel the greatness of the Orthodox faith.

7.5 meters high, the cross is made of whole granite blocks covered in gold leaf.

St. Nicholas Church was built in commemoration of soldiers who were killed defending Sevastopol during the Crimean War in the middle of the 19th century.
