This parish has at least three hundred faithful, and on this day of Baptism another eighty-one people came to Baptism in Orthodoxy.

The Bishop, the clergy and all the newly baptized, walked for half an hour until they reached a small river in order to complete the sacred sacrament.

Unfortunately, it was not possible to build platforms to facilitate the Mystery, so everyone went into the muddy waters to baptize the people.

At the end of the Mystery, Metropolitan of Kananga referred to the importance of the day for their village while conveying to all the wishes and love of Patriarch Theodore II of Alexandria, who continuously supports from the depths of his heart every part of the African Continent.

Father Emmanuel stayed in the village to officiate the Divine Liturgy the next day so that the faithful congregation could receive the holy communion.

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.
