In their speeches, Mr. Golubovsky and Bishop Ioann noted the importance of St. Tikhon’s work for the Russian Church in the United States and in Russia. The president of the Foundation for Preserving the Cultural Heritage of the Russian America “Northern Cross”, Mr. Yu. Sandulov, who initiated and coordinated the project, spoked about the commemorative postmark issued in 5 thousand copies and about the final stage in the work with the New York authorities to name a part of the 97th Street in Manhattan, in which St. Nicholas’s built by the saint is located, after Patriarch Tikhon.

After that the postmark cancellation ceremony took place. The postmark was stamped on a special envelop with an image of the St. Nicholas Patriarchal Cathedral, the website of the Patriarchal Parishes in the USA reports.

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.
