A new Catholic church in Marx on the Volga has been consecrated. The apostolic administrator from Moscow, Archbishop Tadeuz Kondrusiewicz and Cardinal Georg Sterzinsky of Berlin took part in the ceremony. The bishopric of Berlin had participated financially in the construction of the church. According to, Clemens Pickel, priest of the parish, around 250 people are currently attending Sunday services [mass?]. Many Russian-Germans travel long distances to be present.
