MOSCOW, October 16 (RIA Novosti) - Moscow will soon have another
cathedral, whose foundation stones were consecrated today. The new shrine
will belong to the New Nakhichevan and the Russian dioceses of the Armenian
Apostolic Church.

Mayor Yuri Luzhkov addressed the congregation to congratulate the Moscow
ethnic Armenian community, soon to receive a majestic house of prayer. He
pointed out close links of the Russian and Armenian nations throughout many
centuries, and highlighted an honorable Armenian contribution to Russian
culture, research and industry.

The mayor thanked Alexis II, Patriarch of Moscow and All Russia, Primate
of the Russian Orthodox Church, for his stances on other Christian
denominations, which promote Christian unity.

Alexis II and Garegin II, Catholicos of All Armenians, laid a
commemorative capsule in the cathedral foundation.

Mutual understanding and friendly partnership are characteristic of
present-day Russian-Armenian relations. The Russian and Armenian Churches
are exchanging their ample experience and precious spiritual heritage, said
Garegin II.

"Friendly ties between our Churches and flocks will strengthen here,"
added Alexis II.
The cathedral will be essential part of an upcoming Armenian Cultural
Center. It will have a residence of the Patriarchal Exarch of the Armenian
Apostolic Church in Moscow, an educational center plus Sunday school, a
library, a conference hall, and a club-total floor space 22,000 square



Oh Lord, Save thy people and bless thine inheritance.
Grant victory to the Orthodox Christians over their adversaries.
And by virtue of thy Cross preserve thy habitation.
