By the grace of God, services should resume in the Holy Transfiguration Cathedral in Perm by next spring.

The church, currently home to the Perm Art Gallery, will be returned to the Russian Orthodox Church once the artifacts are moved to another location, Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin announced during a working visit yesterday.

Construction on the cathedral began in 1798. It was closed and converted into an art gallery in 1933.

Mishustin thanked all those involved in preserving the gallery’s 60,000 artifacts for so many years, and added: “What’s also very important is that you’re returning the Transfiguration Church to the Orthodox Church,” reports the Perm Region administration.

In order to return the cathedral to the Church, part of the gallery’s collection will be transported to a temporary storage space. The Prime Minister also discussed the further development of the cathedral with His Eminence Metropolitan Methodius of Perm.

This is great news... The most beautiful Art Gallery in the world is the inside of every Orthodox Church... This is real art, Icons of the Theotokos and Jesus and the Saints and the Martyrs... I can only imagine what kind of so-called art the monster communists put into this Church/Art Gallery.. Perm area was also the site of many battles during the heroic struggle against the demonic communists... I hope and pray that the first Divine Liturgy in the Church, when it is reopened, is dedicated to the Martyrs who fought and died in that area. ... as I have said before, the communist punks tried to destroy us, but they failed, as communism is finished, and we are still here.... God has rewarded us because we Fear Him... Just my humble opinion.. ..
