His Eminence Bishop of Niš Mr. Arsenije and the Niš City Mayor Dragana Sotirovski visited the works on the church of St. Basil of Ostrog in Niš settlement Duvanište. It has been five years since the construction of the church began at the request of Duvanište community after the bombing in 1999, which took place on May 12, on the Day of St. Basil of Ostrog. Then, as His Eminence the Bishop of Niš, Mr. Arsenije reminded, not a single citizen of Niš lost his or her life. This building will be open to all our Orthodox believers next year. “The city will do everything that is important to facilitate the official opening of the church on the very date when the Saint Basil is celebrated next year” as Mayor Sotirovski said. The plans will be made with Niš City Chief Town Planner according to which the area around the church would be landscaped.
