Russian Church to Float Down Siberian River

Yakutsk

A unique Russian church will take the word of God to believers and non-believers alike as it floats down rivers in northeast Siberia, a Yakutsk administration spokesperson said.

The church will make its way down the Lena, Aldan and Viluy rivers in the Yakutsk Region.

"A Yakutsk Cossack regiment started the construction of the floating church, blessed by the Bishop Zosimus [who reposed unexpectedly on May 8, 2010] , two years ago," the spokesperson said.

"The church will be ready in the spring of 2011," he added.
