Administration of the Russian Orthodox Church’s parishes in Italy launches official website

admin | 10 January 2014

With a blessing of Archbishop Mark of Yegoryevsk, administrator of the ROC parishes in Italy, the administration of the Moscow Patriarchate parishes has launched an official website.

The information resource introduces Internet users to the parish structure in Italy, publishes addresses and telephone numbers of the parishes and gives links to parish sites. Visitors may use an interactive map of the Moscow Patriarchate parishes in Italy.

The News section informs readers about official events in the life of Russian Orthodoxy in Italy and the Parish News gives reports about the everyday life of Orthodox parishes in the Apennines.

The Shrines section describes holy places in Rome and Italy. It is renewed as more information comes in. The Orthodox Films and Reading sections are important for pilgrims as they offer information about films and books about Italy.

Information about pilgrims centers functioning in Italy with the blessing of the supreme church authorities complements the content of the new Internet resource.

There are also Italian and Moldavian versions of the site, the press service of the Parish of the Holy Myrrh-Bearers in Venice has reported.

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 -,, and 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.
