Description


Our Lady of Smolensk Russian Orthodox Church hold the charity concert in memory of the last Russian Emperor and his Royal Family to collect the funds needed to build the Memorial Chapel in Jacksons Point, Ontario, dedicated to the Royal Martyrs. Following the February Revolution of 1917 Nicholas II and his family were imprisoned and transferred to Tobolsk. With the approval of Lenin, Sverdlov and the rest of the top Bolshevik party leadership, Nicholas and his family were eventually executed on the night of 16–17 July 1918. The recovered remains of the Imperial Family were finally re-interred in St. Petersburg, eighty years to the day on 17 July 1998. In 1981, Nicholas, his wife and their children were canonised as martyrs by the Russian Orthodox Church Outside Russia, located in New York City.On 15 August 2000 Nicholas and his family were canonised as passion bearers, a title commemorating believers who face death in a Christ-like manner, by the Russian Orthodox Church within Russia.
