An exhibition called “Christmas” has opened at St. Anne’s Lutheran Church of St. Petersburg. St. Anne’s members, coworkers, clergymen as well as media people and the church’s friends attended its pre-opening ceremony on November 26, 2022. Praise God for the many guests!
During a Christmas concert, ministers of different Christian denominations each told their part of the Nativity story, proclaiming the values we share together. Many thanks to everybody who responded to the idea proposed by Rev. Raskatov, senior pastor of St. Anne’s Church!
