Church of St. Joseph of Volotsk (Moscow)

3B Akademika Chelomeya Street, Moscow (tel.: +7 495 735-00-10), Metro station: "Kaluzhskaya".

The community of the Church of the Lord's Transfiguration, in the district of Staroye Belyayevo, was created with the blessing of the Most Holy Patriarch Alexius II on 9 April 2005, on Lazarus Saturday. The priest Roman Markov became its dean. For three years, the community fought for the land for the construction of a church; only as late as 2008, the city's authorities met them halfway: the community was allocated land in the former industrial zone.

They received permission to build on the allocated plot a temporary church for performing regular church services.

After the piles of construction waste were removed as was other rubbish that had been gathering for years on the small patch of land behind a concrete fence, the first prayer service was performed, on 30 March 2008. That day marked the start of the construction of a temporary wooden church in honour of the Venerable Joseph of Volotsk.

On 6 April 2008, the first cross procession took place.

The Church was build in five months; on 8 September 2008, the priest Roman Markov, the head of the community, received the Holy Antimins for celebrating the Divine Liturgy, and on 14 September 2008, with the blessing of the Most Holy Patriarch Alexius II, the Church of the Venerable Joseph of Volotsk was consecrated with the small consecration service by Protoiereus Anatoly Kozha, the archpriest of Moscow's Andreyevsky District.

Today, the Church of the Venerable Joseph hosts church services regularly. The number of parishioners is growing constantly. Being designed for 300 people, now the Church struggles to accommodate all who wish to attend; for this reason, the community sees the construction of the main Church of the Lord's Transfiguration as its primary goal. It will be situated nearby, and 2,000 people from the densely-populated Obruchevsky District of Moscow's South-West Borough will be able to pray here.
