Russian officials to return Catholic parish to Church
Catholic World News - October 21, 2010
Officials in the western Russian city Smolensk, a city near the Polish border, have agreed to return a historic Catholic parish building to the Church. Since the Stalin regime, the parish has been used as an archival office.
“After we are through with the construction of a new building for the state archives next year we will be ready to discuss with Poland a plan to restore or repair the Catholic church,” said the local governor.
The parish is inaccurately identified as a cathedral in the first link below.
