Trilistnik (“Trefoil”) Organization, a ministry of the ELCIR Diaconal Department aiding mothers in a crisis, is happy to share some good news:
On August 19, 2021, the Leninsky District Court in St. Petersburg ruled to leave a mother and her children, assisted by this ministry, in the care of Trilistnik Organization.
On Sunday, August 22, 2021, 410 years since the first Lutheran congregation of Ingria was established in Lembolovo in what is Leningrad Oblast today, little Yelizaveta (Elizabeth) in the care of Trilistnik Project was baptized at the Lutheran Congregation of St. Elizabeth of Hungary in Kronstadt, St. Petersburg. The Sacrament of Holy Baptism was administered by Deacon Pavel Tsvetkov. Thanks be to God! The Church lives and grows!
