The ceremony of consecration of the foundation of a wooden church in the name of the Holy Martyr Tatiana took place at the student quarter of PSU

The idea to build a temple on the territory of the Pridnestrovian State University appeared long ago. There was no doubt that the church would have the name of the holy Martyr Tatiana, the patroness of the students. The architectural project of the so-called house church was developed in 2008 as part of an open competition among the general plans for reconstruction of the university. In 2010, the Academic Council voted for the construction of the church, Archbishop of Tiraspol and Dubossary Justinian gave his blessing. The time for implementation came later: on the initiative of the ruling bishop Vladyka Sawa and with the support of the PMR President Vadim Krasnoselsky, they returned to this issue in 2019. The wooden blockhouse of the student church was donated to the university by the Patriarch of Moscow and All Russia Kirill. All materials are already in Pridnestrovie. The foundation was laid on the campus. Today, a solemn ceremony of its consecration took place, which was conducted by Archbishop Sawa, who expressed confidence that the opening of the temple will take place on the next Tatiana's day.

The PMR President took part in the festive event. Vadim Krasnoselsky and other honored guests left their signatures under the text of the letter, that according to Archbishop Sawa, will take its place at the forefront of the future church. Participants in the ceremony of consecrating the foundation of the church made commemorative notches in its foundation, which were consecrated by Vladyka.

Vadim Krasnoselsky, addressing those invited to the celebration according to quarantine restrictions and in their person to all students, teachers, employees of PSU named after Taras Shevchenko, noted that it is a great honor and a serious responsibility to participate in laying a capsule with an official document in the foundation of the Church. In addition, each of the participants in the ceremony is charged with facilitating the early construction of the temple, the President said. The President called today's event a holiday, congratulating everyone who was lucky to participate in it.
