Picture of the week

Bell tower at the Trinity Monastery of St Sergei in Sergiyev Posad, a small town near Moscow.

The monastery was founded in the 15th century and is considered the most important Russian monastery and the spiritual centre of the Russian Orthodox Church. It was founded by St. Sergius of Radonezh, one of the Russian Orthodox Church’s most highly venerated saints. Today the Trinity Monastery is still one of the largest monasteries in Russia.
