An Orthodox Priest with 70 Children

An Orthodox Priest with 70 Children


Assigned to an unremarkable village after seminary, Fr. Nikolay decided to do something big. He organized the building of three Orthodox churches, an Orthodox school, and a charity house with expansive facilities.

In addition to all of that, over the years Fr. Nikolay and his wife have adopted 70 orphans, raising them as their own.

Check out the RT documentary to learn more about their story, and to see footage of the gorgeous churches and charitable facilities they have built in their small town.
