A day in the life of a priest (62 photos)

Clerics spoke about the village of Tiksi and the service in the church.
Let's see how these people live, their life is very different from the lives of today's youth.

Morning. Service is at 6:45

The cell wall is an icon that gave me once one person. With a man so we quarreled and do not communicate, and that's the icon, left.

In the hallway hangs a bell)) from the time when the apartment was the home church of

Start the morning of the eighth. You have to go in the oven to melt our temporary temple. Liturgy at 10. On the street still dark and the growing moon shines bright.

The temperature of the beam in the street. per night chilled. Stove flares slowly.

While a burned firewood tab, you can go home. To the east is already lighter.

There is an hour or so to prepare for the service, check the mail and see the weather forecast))

By nine in the morning the sun is already shining in full right of the window

Came Sergei Petrovich, our student intern. Today he will help us in the service. And, oh. Vladimir and Victor - the second trainee, sleep off after taymylyrskoy expedition. By the way, when I sat in the car, then he dropped the gauntlet same one dog trying to pull off. This time lost - permanently))

Electricity in the temple not - use rechargeable flashlights and candles. Here, on the reading of the Gospel candle in hand because it is not required by the statute, and quite functional - that it was clear the text

After the readings - preaching

Communion. Since there is no iconostasis, we read together the prayer before Communion, the priest during communion of people singing "Take the Body of Christ .." and immediately committed communion of the laity. When the icon screen, of course - this practice will change in the generally accepted clergy will partake separately, behind closed doors.

After the service, when everyone had gone, came a few people with their different questions. They shoot it would be incorrect. And in the photo - Psalms in Yakut. As it is sometimes read psalms on the clock.

The service is over. Need to buy bearings for all-terrain vehicle, bread and butter and you can go to the garrison Tiksi-3, our missionaries who came to ask about the trip - we talk to has not yet succeeded. In the photo - just kind of our job site. Temple will stand to the left of the beam.

Go to the "sailors". "Sailor" - almost all)), there is a hotel, court, museum, bar and shops. even the polling station - there too.

There are, very handy, MP and local businessman, who promised us ... well, a lot of things. He complains about the drunks workers, and again - promises that's up to 15 March all certainly will. Actually - it is a good man)) so that we photographed together and agree on a meeting. I think that this time he promises to fulfill.
