Pravmir.com team | 24 September 2018

About 1 billion rubles ($14,6 million) were conveyed to the charitable foundation Voskreseniye that collects means for building the main church of Russian Military Forces, the foundation press service reports.

The fundraising was announced on September 4 at a conference call of the Russian Defense Ministry. The first to donate was the midshipman of the North Fleet, the second one was Russian Defense Minister Sergey Shoygu.

The church will become a spiritual and educational center for servicemen, Orthodox priests and citizens of Russia. It will house an exposition dedicated to the history of setting up the Russian state and the Military Forces.

The church will be 95-meter high (including the cross), the total square of the building is 10,950 sq. m. The church can house up to 6,000 people at a time.

It will have several altars, the central of which will be dedicated to the main Christian feast – Resurrection, the others – to heavenly protectors of different kinds of the Military forces.

Since you are here…

…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 euros 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 euros a month, they would contribute greatly to our ability to spread the word of Christ, Orthodoxy, life's purpose, family and society.

Dear Friends,
