The Church of the Life-Giving Trinity (Russian: Церковь Троицы Живоначальной or Свято-Троицкая церковь) is a Russian Orthodox church in Kamensk-Shakhtinsky, Rostov Oblast, Russia. It belongs to Kamenskoe deanery of Shakhty and Millerovo diocese.

History[edit]

The Holy Trinity parish was established in Kamensk-Shakhtinsky in April 1997. In 1998, the parish was granted a building in which a prayer house was arranged. The church itself was opened on July 9, 1998 and has only one altar consecrated in honour of the Holy Trinity. Subsequently, a dome was also built there, and in 2003 a belfry was installed with new bells. Now there are five domes, a refectory and a low bell tower. Building's architecture resembles that of the late 19th century.[1]

The Holy Trinity possesses a fragment of the holy relics of St. Tikhon of Zadonsk, who was a Bishop of Voronezh and a wonderworker.

In the church there are also a canteen for homeless, a Sunday school, church charity shop and a choir.[2][3]
