Meeting with rector of the Orthodox church in Brasilia Father Francisco

November 14, 2019, Brasilia

Vladimir Putin met with rector of the Church of Our Lady the Odigitria in Brasilia, Father Francisco de Assis da Cruz Feitosa.

Francisco de Assis da Cruz Feitosa was born in Brazil into a Catholic family, and converted to Orthodoxy in 1994 together with his wife. In 2014, he was ordained as a priest of the Russian Orthodox Church by Bishop Leonid of Argentina and South America.

The Church of Our Lady the Odigitria was built in Brasilia a few years ago through the efforts of Father Francisco.
