The Holy Vvedensky Cathedral in Karaganda holds a central place in the city as the principal church of the Karaganda and Shakhty diocese within the Russian Orthodox Church. Renowned for its grandeur, St. Vvedensky Cathedral stands as one of the largest Orthodox churches in the entire country.
The cathedral’s inception was the brainchild of Bishop Jan Pavel Lenge, who envisioned the need for this spiritual center in Karaganda. On a significant day, September 9, 2012, the cathedral was formally consecrated in a solemn ceremony led by Cardinal Angelo Sodano, the Dean of the College of Cardinals and the legate of Pope Benedict XVI.
Guiding the faithful since September 2019, the cathedral’s current rector is Priest Vladimir Nemets, ensuring the continuity of spiritual leadership and community within this magnificent place of worship.
