On the 11th of September 2017, which marked the 16th anniversary of the dreadful terror attack in the United States that had killed almost three thousand people, a requiem service was celebrated at the Church of the Holy Great Martyr Catherine In-the-Fields, the Moscow Representation of the Orthodox Church in America.

Prior to the service, Archpriest Christopher Hill read out a message of His Beatitude Metropolitan Tikhon of All America and Canada to the clergy and parishioners, commemorating this tragic date.

The requiem service was celebrated in the English and Church Slavonic languages, website of the Representation reports.

Among those present were Mr. Christopher T. Robinson, Minister Counselor for Political Affairs of the U.S. Embassy in Moscow, and Ms. Nina Kondraty, Secretary for Political Affairs of the Embassy of Canada in Moscow.

The requiem service was followed by a minute of silence, during which the bells at the Representation’s belfry tolled 16 times.

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.
