The construction of the Orthodox church in honor of St. Sophia of the Wisdom of God in Warsaw (Poland) is coming to an end. About it reports Global Orthodox portal with reference to the statement of His Beatitude Metropolitan Savva of Warsaw and All Poland, [published](https://www.orthodox.pl/odezwa-metropolity-sawy-ws-poswiecenia-cerkwi-hagia-sophia /) on the website of the Polish Orthodox Church.
The head of the Polish Orthodox Church thanked the faithful for the financial, physical and prayerful support of the construction process. The great consecration of the temple will take place on May 14, 2023.
As Metropolitan Savva stressed, the Church of St. Sophia is a monument "to those who died in the Warsaw Uprising, labor camps and concentration camps: Auschwitz, Katyn, Mednoye, Yavozhno, were forcibly relocated to the East or to the West," therefore, prayers will be offered in the church for the repose of their souls, "so that we all remember the suffering of our ancestors".
The Church of St. Sophia is the first Orthodox church built in Warsaw in a hundred years. Architect Andrzej Markowski designed the church on the model of the Cathedral of St. Sophia of Constantinople.
