The fabric of the building was greatly altered during this period. In 1999, the process of returning the property to the Eastern Orthodox Church began, and since then it has been used by a congregation of the autonomous Estonian Orthodox Church (EAOK). Now a constituent parish and cathedral church of the EAOK archdiocese of Tallinn, it was extensively restored early in the 21st century. The church is dedicated to the saints Simeon the God-receiver and Anna the Prophetess, both New Testament figures who appear in the Gospel of Luke.
