MOSCOW, Jan. 17 (UPI) -- The Russian Orthodox Church said it has established a university to assist Orthodox staff in dealing with business and state companies.

The school was founded by the direct decree of the Patriarch Kirill of Moscow, the patriarch's official Web site and Moscow's RIA Novosti reported Monday.

Officials said the school was needed to address "the acute shortage of competent and competitive Orthodox staff in state, society and business."

The university will be located in Novaya Square in downtown Moscow, the news sources said.
