The delegation was formed of the following members: Vice President Fawaz El Khoury, Dan Abraham, George Madanat, Mansour Rayan, Dan Braun, Salim Abboud, Majed Nesheiwat, and Edward Assile.

His Beatitude received Metropolitan Silouan in private before meeting the entire delegation. The delegation gave to His Beatitude a letter on behalf of the Board of Trustees unanimously approved at its last meeting on Thursday, May 14th in Chicago. They also presented him with a check of $125,000 as a contribution in the name of the Archdiocese to the humanitarian relief efforts that our Patriarchate is undertaking, especially in the dramatic situation in Syria.

At the end of the interview, before sharing lunch together with His Beatitude, Metropolitan Silouan gave His Beatitude an icon of the Savior that he was given at Saint George Church in Montreal.

…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.
