Archbishop Demetrios Applauds Governor Cuomo’s Initiative for Equal Opportunity in Education

His Eminence Archbishop Demetrios of America comments, “on behalf of the Greek Orthodox citizens of New York who are deeply committed to their own parochial schools, I thank and congratulate Governor Cuomo for his leadership in this important family-oriented initiative. This is a step in the right direction for the State of New York, and for society as a whole.”  The Orthodox Christians have always stood up for equality, and the Parental Choice in Education Act has the potential to offer equal opportunity in education to those who currently do not have the possibility of choice.

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.
