Holy Virgin Protection Cathedral
Russian Orthodox Church Outside Russia
Des Plaines, IL USA
The consecration of a new temple in honor of the Holy Trinity took place on Sunday, Nov 8 in Milwaukee.  Through the grace of God and persistent hard work of Fr. Vasily Kuzmich, a property that was formerly a Protestant church was purchased.  The consecration of the new church building was concelebrated by Bishop Peter of Cleveland and Bishop Jerome of Manhattan (formerly Fr. John, long-time rector of Holy Trinity Church in Milwaukee). 

The Divine Liturgy was then served with a multitude of clergy and faithful in attendance who had come from many surrounding parishes. A large number of worshippers partook of the Divine Gifts from two chalises.  At the end of the Divine Liturgy, Bishop Peter presented gramotas to those who worked so hard to bring this about.

We warmly congratulate Fr. Vasily and all the parishioners of Holy Trinity Church in Milwaukee!
