A Russian Orthodox parish had existed in Leuven/Louvain from 1923 to around 1975. After an interruption of nearly thirty years' the first Liturgy in Russian was celebrated in the city on 29 November 2003 in a Roman-Catholic church made available by the dean of the city. Since then, every week the St Mattew parish brings together orthodox worshippers of different origins living in and around Leuven.
