Church Website

Construction began in 2004 as a cooperative effort with both Russian and Ukrainian sponsors. The church was consecrated in 2007 and is open to all visitors. The structure is 60 meters high, with the dome's gilded ball serving as an operating lighthouse, giving a ray of hope to all lost on the sea. The church was built as a memorial to all people who died in the waters. Besides being a church and lighthouse, it is also a museum with a memorial wall and museum of sea disasters in the basement.
