Milan archdiocese offers parish for Russian Orthodox use October 03, 2006

Cardinal Dionigi Tettamanzi of Milan has agreed to make a church in that city available for use by the Russian Orthodox Church, the Interfax news service reports.

Cardinal Tettamanzi, who is in Moscow this week for visits with Orthodox leaders, made the announcement during a meeting with Patriarch Alexei II.

The Italian cardinal said that the parish church of St. Anthony, in downtown Milan, will be offered for occasional use by the Russian Orthodox community there, until a parish church is turned over permanently to the Orthodox.
