Father Alexander. How it began

 Little children who suffer – is a call! It’s God’s question: “How should we act here?” In this action lies our real answer.
Fr. Alexander Men

Our ministry in the hospital began under the spiritual guidance of the famous Orthodox priest Fr. Alexander Men. He first came here in 1989  with a small group of his parishioners. Our history dates from the very day on which he made his appeal: “On Sunday, right after the service, all who want to help at the hospital are welcome to come”.

In those days there was no such practice, so what Fr. Alexander did was really brave. However as we have come to know, the priest understood where he was going. Thus we became one of the first Russian Church charity services working in hospitals.

Those six months Fr. Alexander managed to spend with us on that path laid the foundation of our future work, which we’ve been standing on ever since. And we’re answering God’s question how we can.
