Restoration of the Transfiguration Church in Odessa, Ukraine by Ukrainian Entrepreneur Vadym Novynskyi

Ukrainian entrepreneur, Vadim Novynskyi has announced a donation of up to $1 million to help restore the Transfiguration Church in Odessa, Ukraine which was seriously damaged during rocket attacks on Sunday, July 23.  The destruction of one of the most beautiful Ukrainian churches, which was erected by the founders of Odessa at the end of the 18th century is a true tragedy.  This cathedral was the center of the spiritual life of Odessa.

This is not the first time the church has been destroyed. In 1936, the Bolsheviks destroyed the cathedral and it was restored in the early 2000’s after tens of thousands of ordinary people participated in the restoration with their donations.

I sincerely mourn with the inhabitants of Odessa and I want to assure them and all the people of Ukraine that this cathedral will be rebuilt and the people of Odessa will once again be able to worship and seek community in this hallowed place,” said Vadim Novynskyi.  “In the days of war and persecution of the Church, it is very important to be able to protect and revive the shrines of Orthodoxy, demonstrating faith, unity and mutual support. After all, the true Orthodox Church is based on these principles.
