The Alexander Nevsky Lavra was the first to start collecting. “How not to respond when the Mariupol churches are dilapidated? Now we send, first of all, what is constantly needed for worship,” said the vicar of the Alexander Nevsky Lavra, Bishop Nazariy of Kronstadt. About two dozen St. Petersburg churches joined the good deed. It is important that they collected and bought exactly what the specific temples of Mariupol needed.
