A Pannikhida is Served Over the Grave of Archimandrite Antonin (Kapoustin) in Holy Ascension Convent on the Mt of Olives on the Anniversary of His Death

April 6 (24 o.s.), 2013, was the anniversary of the death of the eminent Chief of the Russian Ecclesiastical Mission in Jerusalem, founder of Russian Palestine, Archimandrite Antonin (Kapoustin), who headed the mission from 1865-1894. Over the course of 29 years of service in the Holy Land, he acquired a massive amount of real estate, including sites of historical Old and New Testament importance. The servant of Russian Palestine was buried in the cathedral he founded at Holy Ascension Convent on the Mt of Olives in Jerusalem.

On April 6, 2013, after Divine Liturgy, a pannikhida was performed over his grave by the Chief of the Russian Ecclesiastical Mission in Jerusalem of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia, Hieromonk Roman (Krassovsky).

…we do have a small request. More and more people visit Orthodoxy and the World website. However, resources for editorial are scarce. In comparison to some mass media, we do not make paid subscription. It is our deepest belief that preaching Christ for money is wrong.

Having said that, Pravmir provides daily articles from an autonomous news service, weekly wall newspaper for churches, lectorium, photos, videos, hosting and servers. Editors and translators work together towards one goal: to make our four websites possible - Pravmir.ru, Neinvalid.ru, Matrony.ru and Pravmir.com. Therefore our request for help is understandable.

For example, 5 dollars a month is it a lot or little? A cup of coffee? It is not that much for a family budget, but it is a significant amount for Pravmir.

If everyone reading Pravmir could donate 5 dollars a month, they would contribute greatly to our ability to spread the word of Christ, Orthodoxy, life's purpose, family and society.
