PATRIARCH OF MOSCOW AND ALL RUSSIA ALEXEY
Dear brothers and sisters!
In the heart of Russia, rebuilding of Christ the Savior Cathedral - one of the greatest
constructive projects of our time, is coming to an end. There are millions of Russian and
foreign people, tens of thousands of banks, firms, state and private financial entities of
Russia and foreign counties among those who with their donations helped to bring the day
of the Cathedral's consecration.
During this finishing period we call upon you to take part in the financing of specific
works of pending projects of art elements of the Cathedral's complex, and reconstruction
of the worship utensil. Your donation will be greatly appreciated by all Russians, Moscow
Patriarchy, and Government of Moscow; it is also going to be rewarded with a special
Gramota (muniment), and a name of your organization (or even your own name, if you wish
so) is going to be memorialized by having it carved in gold letters on memorial plates
installed in the Cathedral's galleries that serve as a living history of oblation service

three compositions performed in the unique Florentine mosaic technique (the main

Refectories are going to be used not only for solemn meetings with
high-ranking guests but also to feed the Cathedral's guests, palmers, and the poor, as
well as for exhibitions.
Unfortunately, it is not possible now to complete recreation of unique
icons for Saint Prince Alexander Nevsky narthex on the choicely in the main Cathedral.
