Long Description:
Tsasouna, rukoushuone, kappeli

Kirkkoa vaatimattomampi ja alttariton yhteisöllisen rukouksen paikka. Venäjän kieleen pohjautuva nimi paljastaa, että tsasouna on tarkoitettu hetkipalvelusten ja muiden maallikkojen suorittamien palvelusten toimittamiseen.
A modest church without a althar and communal prayer position. Russian language based on the name reveals that the Chapel is the moment for services performed by non-specialists and other services delivery.


In the years preceding the Second World War the focus of activities was on Karelia, where the majority of the parishes were, but after the war, with the resettlement of the population of the ceded territories of Karelia over the rest of Finland, a new, comprehensive network of parishes was created, new churches were built, mainly in the 1950s, and the country was divided at first into two dioceses, that of Karelia, covering the central and eastern parts of the country, and that of Helsinki, covering the southern part, western part and Lapland in the north.
