St. Nicholas Naval Cathedral

Kherson, Ukraine
4.7 / 20
The St. Nicholas Naval Cathedral is a beloved and cherished temple in our city. It has become a second home for many, with its stunning beauty, friendly parishioners, and responsive priests. It is a place where one's soul can find healing and peace. The cathedral holds immense pride for our city, being one of the oldest temples and continuously renewing itself with its timeless beauty. It captivates visitors with its sea stories, serene atmosphere, and miraculous icons. Sailors are blessed before their voyages, and Saint Nicholas himself blesses all who come to him in the church courtyard. A perpetual lamp burns in memory of deceased sailors, while inside the church, restless souls find tranquility through the holy prayers of the priests. The cathedral is known for its cleanliness, pleasant atmosphere, and abundance of icons. The icon of St. Nicholas the Wonderworker, with a piece of relics, is a source of great pride. The temple seamlessly combines the past and the present, with old darkened icons blending harmoniously with the recently renovated white walls and floor. It is a place that brings both anxiety and joy to those who enter. Many have a deep love for this temple, having visited it for years. It is highly recommended for everyone to experience the beauty of the Naval Cathedral. While some find it beautiful, others believe it may have excessive grandeur, similar to other Moscow churches under the same authority. Nevertheless, it is appreciated for its rich history and the devoted clergy who serve the congregation with unwavering dedication, regardless of their social or financial status. May the temple continue to prosper and grow spiritually, bringing many blessed years to all who visit. However, there are some concerns regarding its affiliation with the Moscow Patriarchate and its financial support to a country that is seen as causing harm to our children.
