Visit to the under construction Church of the Dormition of the Theotokos in Jeonju, South Korea
On Sunday, July 26, after the Divine Liturgy, the faithful from the parish of the Dormition of the Theotokos in Jeonju visited the site where the new Church and the Community Center are being erected. Everyone was excited by the progress of the work so far. During their visit, the Metropolitan of Korea stated, among other things, that “the construction of this Byzantine church in Korea is a response to what tragically happened these days, with the transformation of Hagia Sophia from a museum into a mosque. The Korean Orthodox Faithful are building, in their homeland, so far away from Istanbul, a new «Hagia Sophia» in miniature form!
On Tuesday 28, a meeting was held between representatives of the Orthodox Metropolis of Korea and the Architect at the factory, which manufactures the molds for the dome, the arches of the Holy Altar and the arches of the church.
