Several hundred believers participated in the Eater Service at the Holy Trinity Cathedral built in 2016 on the Sena river shores. Patriarch Kirill consecrated Trinity Cathedral the same year. The service was conducted in Russian and French. 

This service was the third one after Patriarch Kirill's visit. In 2017, Russian President has attended the church and brought the Holy Trinity icon as a gift.  

According to the Head of France–Urals association Dimitri de Kochko, this church is a symbol for a long friendship between Russia and France, it is a symbol of common cultures as well.

The Cathedral project belongs to renown French architect Jean-Michel Wilmotte. Famous in France burgundy limestone was used during construction. The same stone we can see looking at Louvre museum and Notre-Dame de Paris.
