Since the start of the 200 churches program in 2010, more than twelve dozen churches have been built in Moscow, and another 200 are currently under construction.

Thus, the program has far surpassed its original goal.

Today, there about 130 completed stone churches, with the same number of parish halls with Sunday Schools, according to MP Vladimir Resin, curator of the construction program, reports Foma.

According to Resin, never before in the history of Christianity have so many churches been under construction in one city. The goal is to eventually have at least one church within walking distance of all residential areas in Moscow.

The construction program runs entirely on donations, gathered in part by a charitable foundation established specifically for this purpose.
