My name is Marina Vershinina. I’m in the 7-th form. I live in Novokuibyshevsk, Samara Region. Our town is rather young. It is only 60 years old. In Russia it is famous more for its chemical enterprises. That’s true. But at the same time Novokuibyshevsk has rich cultural traditions. One of these traditions is closely connected with the churches’ constructing. About twenty-five years ago there were no churches in our town. Many people had to go to Samara churches. They wanted to have a church in their native town. The first church was built in 1991. All citizens of Novokuibyshevsk took part in its building.
This church was named after Seraphim Sarovsky, the greatest Russian Saint.
The first priest of the church was Konstantin Sibryaev. When father Konstantin came to our town, he was seventy-five years old. The citizens of the town respected the priest. He was very kind, honest and helpful. Father Konstantin made much for the developing of the religious life in Novokuibyshevsk. He organized the Orthodox Centre “Sinai” and helped many people to find the right way in the difficult life. Three years ago the priest died. He was buried in the yard of the church. Every day people come to his grave, asking for help and advice.
Now the church is a majestic beautiful building. It attracts the attention of all tourists who come to Novokuibyshevsk. The church icons were painted by the best artists of our town: Alexander Prosvirnov and Vladimir Butenkov. My mum and I often go to this church and pray. If you come to Novokuibyshevsk, you should visit the Orthodox Beauty of the town!
