MOSCOW, November 3 (RIA Novosti) – Patriarch of Moscow and All Russia Alexy II said Friday that he might pay a visit to Cuba in 2007, to consecrate the opening of a Russian Orthodox Church in the Caribbean country.

After a meeting in Moscow with the head of Cuba’s parliament, Ricardo Alarcon, the Russian Orthodox leader said: “The president of the National Assembly of Cuba informed me that the construction of an Orthodox Church in Cuba is developing actively.”

“The construction could be completed by the end of next year,” Patriarch Alexy II said. “Because of this, I have been invited to visit Cuba for the consecration and the opening of this church.”
