5 Tatarstan inmates baptized in font built by fellow prisoners
The Baptisms were celebrated by full immersion in a font built by the hands of prisoners several years ago.
“With the appearance of the church, the spiritual life of the colony began new growth. The participation of inmates in worship services, the reading of spiritual literature, talks, and charitable activities help many of them return to normal life and reconsider their priorities in life,” notes Fr Kirill Nazarov, who is responsible for the pastoral care of inmates in the Zelenodolsk Deanery.
MORE THAN 70 CHULYM TATARS RECEIVE HOLY BAPTISM
More than 70 people from the small indigenous Chulym population of Siberia have united themselves to Christ in His Church in holy Baptism in Krasnoyarsk Krai, reports the Diocese of Krasnoyarsk.
The mass Baptism came during a recent missionary trip to the villages of Chindat and Pasechnoe in the Tyukhtetsky District undertaken by Fr. Vitaly Adaemnkov, the rector of St. Nicholas Church in Bogotol and Holy Annunciation Church in the village of Tyukhtet.
These settlements are home to the indigenous Chulym Tatars who appeared in the 17th—18th century as a result of the mixing of some Turkic groups. They warmly welcomed Fr. Vitaly, who held catechetical talks, after which he celebrated the Sacrament of Baptism for more than 70 people.
GOSPEL OF MARK FULLY TRANSLATED INTO ENDANGERED CHULYM LANGUAGE
The Gospel of Mark has been fully translated into the Chulym language, which is in danger of completely disappearing, reports the site of the Diocese of Tomsk of the Russian Orthodox Church.
Representatives of the small indigenous Chulym people of Siberia of Turkic origin, whose name comes from the Chulym River (a tributary of the Ob), mainly live in the Teguldet region of the central Russian Tomsk Province. According to a 2010 census, the number of Chulyms living in Russia does not exceed 360. The Chulym ethnic group was formed in the 13th-14th centuries and was later largely assimilated by the Khakas and Russians.
