On December 17, on the day of the patron saint of miners, the Holy Great Martyr Barbara, a special moleben was held at Solntsevsky Coal Mine. The service was conducted by Father Superior of Uglegorsk Church, Anatoly Grekhov.
Archpriest Anatoly positively assessed the fact that employees of the coal mine can venerate the image of the Saint, despite the working day.
The icon with the image of Saint Barbara was delivered from the Church of the Vladimir Icon of the Mother of God. Holy Face of the Saint is a gift from East Mining Company to the Church, and this is the third time it has been brought to the mine for a festive prayer service.
After the solemn service, a festive table with sweet dishes was laid for all employees and guests of Solntsevsky Coal Mine. East Mining Company also donated sweets to the church for low-income families.
