Photo and description
The house church of the holy great martyr and healer Panteleimon at the Vsevolozhsk central hospital was consecrated on December 10, 1996.
A one-storey utility building located on the territory of the hospital was converted into the premises of the temple of the healer Panteleimon. All the necessary liturgical supplies were purchased at the expense of the central hospital of Vsevolozhsk and voluntary donations. Through the efforts of the believers, in a fairly short period, all communications of the building allocated for the temple were brought into proper condition. All the necessary temple devices were installed: an altar, a throne, a pulpit, an iconostasis tambour, a kliros, analogies. The auxiliary rooms of the temple, a place for selling candles were equipped, an iconostasis, more than 30 icons were completed and installed.
When all the work on the arrangement of the temple in the part of the great martyr Panteleimon at the regional hospital was completed (and this happened in July 1996) , the hospital management turned to Archpriest I. Varlamov, rector of the Holy Trinity Church of Vsevolozhsk, with a request that he petition Metropolitan Vladimir for the consecration of the hospital church. The blessing of the Metropolitan was received.
In December 1996, Archpriest Nikolai (Teteryatnikov), in collaboration with Archpriest I. Varlamov and Archpriest P. Feer, choir, deacons and with a huge crowd of believers, the consecration of the temple and the Divine Liturgy were performed. The nourishment of the temple of the healer Panteleimon was entrusted to the parables of the Holy Trinity Church of Vsevolozhsk.
In 1999, the administration of the regional hospital sent a request for spiritual nourishment to the parish of St. Panteleimon's Church of St. , and since 1999 it has been assigned to the Church of the Savior Not Made by Hands. After that, regular services began in the hospital church.
In addition, a branch of the `` Wakefulness '' club was opened at the hospital church (Petersburg) with the blessing of Archpriest Igor (Skopets), the rector of the church. "Wakefulness" is actively involved in the fight against drug addiction and alcoholism. In hospital departments, including in the maternity ward, stands were organized where one can get acquainted with Orthodox literature. The hospital church was on daily duty, i.e. he was available to everyone to pray.
In April 2002, in the name of His Eminence Metropolitan Vladimir, the hospital administration sent a petition that the hospital church of the Holy Great Martyr and Healer Panteleimon be given the status of an independent parish and a permanent priest appointed.
Already 16 May 2002, by the decree of Metropolitan Vladimir, priest Mikhail Petrovich Pogodin was appointed rector of the temple of the healer Panteleimon at the regional hospital of Vsevolozhsk.
