S. Alexeevsky Church At Harbin China
S. Alexeevsky Church is the second Church we visit in Harbin, unlike St Sophia which is for tourist attraction only, the S. Alexeevsky Church is still in use to conduct mass and since that day is Sunday we drop by to have our Sunday mass.
I notice on the window the word is J.S which J stand for Jesus but not sure what S stand for anyone know what S stand for?

Originally the church is Eastern Orthodox Church was built in 12 Oct 1930 and complete in 6 Oct 1935 by Russians ,but later it was convert to Roman Catholic Church after the Russians has gone back to Russia.
