Archimandrite Oleg (Cherepanin), representative of the Russian Orthodox Church in Thailand, visited Koh Phangan (Surat Thani Province)

01-02 March 2016 Archimandrite Oleg (Cherepanin), representative of the Russian Orthodox Church in Thailand, visited Koh Phangan (Surat Thani Province). The main purpose of the trip was to assess the feasibility of building an Orthodox church on the island and buying, in this regard, the plot of land. On this trip, Archimandrite Oleg was accompanied by the rector of the Ascension Church on Koh Samui, Priest Alexey Golovin. Following the meeting with Orthodox believers on Koh Phangan, taking into account the opinion of the priest Alexei Golovin and his personal acquaintance with the situation, Archimandrite Oleg stated:

1. On Koh Phangan, there is a sufficiently large Russian-speaking community, which is made up of both permanent residents of the island and seasonal visitors. A large number of tourists, including those from Orthodox countries, annually visit the island.

2. Koh Phangan is a dynamic resort destination in Thailand. Today, the island has more than 400 hotels, an international school, and an international airport.

3. On the island, there are Catholic and Protestant churches, mosques, Buddhist temples.

In addition, Archimandrite Oleg is now familiar with the offer for sale of land plots, their value and suitability for subsequent construction of an Orthodox church. According to the Representative of the Russian Orthodox Church in the region, an Orthodox temple on Koh Phangan will be in demand, and this issue deserves closer study. However, Archimandrite Oleg drew attention to the fact that, at the present time, the Church is already conducting several large-scale construction projects: the Theological College in Phuket, the Holy Temple of the Saint George the Martyr in Phnom Penh, the reconstruction of the Church of All Saints in Pattaya, all of which requires considerable consolidation of the general church funds. Therefore, the final decision on the purchase of land on Koh Phangan and the subsequent construction of an Orthodox church there will be made after discussion with the benefactors and donors.

Representation of Russian Orthodox Church in Thailand sincerely thanks members of the Ascension Church on Koh Samui, who wished to assume the costs associated with Archimandrite Oleg's visit to see Koh Phangan.

Saint Panteleimon's Church under Construction in Sihanoukville (Cambodia).

According to the parish website of Saint Painteleimon (Martyr and Healer), construction work continues to meet the expectations spelled out under the contract. According to Mr. M. Ryumshin (Chairman of the local Orthodox parish community), frequent heavy rainfall delays construction work. Inspite of this, contractual deadlines continue to be met.

At the moment the basement is under construction. It is not an easy task owing to large amounts of rock contained within that plot of land. Explosives are required in order to progress with the construction work. Metal work for the basement is also under way.
