On April 20, 2013, the Saturday of the Akathist, Bishop Nestor of Korsun served a Divine Liturgy in the house Church of the Paris Theological Seminary. At the Liturgy Bishop Nestor ordained into the priesthood Jean Denis Rano, a Frenchman from Martinique Island.

Representatives of the Orthodox community on Martinique and also the priest’s relatives were present at the Liturgy. In near future, the newly ordained Priest will be sent to serve in the first parish of the diocese of Korsun on Martinique. The first service in the Orthodox Church of Martinique will be celebrated on Easter.

After the Liturgy, Bishop Nestor shared a meal with teachers and students of the seminary and blessed the frescoes in the refectory that had been completed last week.

Before the service the seminary’s rector and students sang the Akathist to the Most Holy Mother of God in the wooden Church. This was the first service in this Church and works on its adornment are continuing, reports the website of the diocese of Korsun.

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.
