Washington, DC: Parishioners of St. John the Baptist Cathedral Fundraise for Ukrainian Refugees

Parishioners of St. John the Baptist Cathedral in Washington, DC have raised several thousand dollars in funds to aid Ukrainian refugees in Russia and Ukraine. Cathedral rector Archpriest Victor Potapov explained that the founders of one of central Ukraine’s children’s benevolent funds had reached out to him for help. Fr. Victor explained that, in the interests of political correctness, the funds were split evenly, with one half going to Ukraine and the other half to Russia, inasmuch as refugees are located in both, and all of them need assistance.

Cathedral parishioners responded similarly in 2008 to events in South Ossetia, when collected funds were sent both to that republic and to a convent in Georgia, which had been offering sanctuary to those who were forced from their homes.

…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.
