The Catholic Church in Russia
As of yet not all parishes are connected to the net, but a few are. Just as each parish differs greatly from one another so also do the various sites. If you have some free time, maybe you would like to make a cyber tour or pilgrimage of the various parishes......... http://www.catholic-church.org/church-unity/c...
Cheljabinsk lies on the Siberian side of the Southern Urals. In the main parish work several German priests and some American sisters who keep us up to date with frequent newsletters.
Irkutsk lies in the heart of Siberia on the beautiful Lake Baikal, the deepest in the world. Read an open letter of the pastor.
Kazan This site, run by a group of Argentinian priests is highly recommendable. It describes the life of Catholics in one of Russia's most beautiful and historical cities. The site offers a wide range of links and of books on line. It is in English, Russian and Spanish.
Magadan is an isolated city in the Russian Far East. The city grew up out of the gulag system.
Penza a beautiful and historical city in the heart of European Russia, is home to a parish which is only beginning to be born again. Help it with your prayers!
Ryzan one of the cities of the Russian Golden Circle, about 200 km's from Moscow, is a parish struggling to get official recognition, the return of its Church and the permanent presence of a priest.
Samara a major industrial city on the Volga River is home to a historically Polish parish. The church here is one of the most well preserved of Catholic churches in Russia.
Syzran is a small provincial city on the Volga. The parish is mostly ethnic German and strives and thrives in an ecumenical spirit. It is not only a pleasure for people to visit the church in Syzran, but its web-page is well organized and makes an enjoyable visit as well.

Ulianovsk is a parish struggling in its revival. It suffered greatly in the town where Lenin was born and is still struggling in the battle with the effects and remainders of atheistic communism.
Vladivostok a major port on Russia's pacific coast. Not far from North Korea and China, the parish and the surrounding areas are served by two American priests.
Yakutsk is a town in the center (almost north) Siberia. Here a group of Salesians are at work.
