MOSCOW, December 30, 22:34 /ITAR-TASS/. Orthodox Christians are bringing donations for the families of people who were killed or injured in the bomb explosions in Volgograd on December 29 and 30, Archpriest Valentin Skrypnikov, the head of the social welfare department of the Volgograd eparchy, told Itar-Tass on Monday.
He said the aid to needy would be targeted.
“Funeral services for the dead and prayers for those who were injured during the Volgograd tragedy will be held free of charge,” Father Valentin went on to say.
Priests are now on duty in all city hospitals in Volgograd where the injured were taken, including the morgue of city hospital No.25, to give psychological assistance to the blast victims’ relatives.
With the blessing of Metropolitan Herman of Volgograd, churches in the Volgograd region will hold funeral services in the morning and in the evening during the days of mourning.
