“The construction began in July 2014 and in October this year it will open its doors to visitors. There will be a modern platform for concerts, film screenings and exhibitions. The center should host an educational environment with training programs in Russian. Of course, the Cathedral of the Holy Trinity will be the jewel of this center,” Medvedev said at the forum organized by Russkiy Mir Foundation that opened in Moscow on Sunday.
The center is located at the intersection of Quai Branly and Rapp Avenue. It will host an Orthodox church, a Russian-French school, and an exhibition hall.
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.
