Russian Orthodox hymns to sound in Notre-Dame de Paris

admin | 13 March 2014

Moscow, March 13, Interfax – The Korsun Diocese of the Russian Church reached an agreement with Notre-Dame de Paris on conducting Orthodox prayer services each Friday of the Great Lent.


The acathist to the Mother of God will be read before the Icon of the Mother of God of Vladimir conveyed to the cathedral by Patriarch Alexy II to commemorate his visit to Notre-Dame de Paris in 2007.

Orthodox prayer service will anticipate the ceremony of venerating to the Saviour’s Crown of Thorns kept in the church for many centuries, the official site of the Korsun Diocese reports.

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 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.
