ieronymosArchbishop Ieronymos of Athens and All Greece will be nominated honorary Doctor by the School of Medicine of the University of Ioannina, on June 19.

This is a particularly important decision by the Senate of the University of Ioannina, which in this way honors the charitable work of the Church.

The ceremony will be held in one of the university’s rooms in the afternoon. During his visit to Ioannina, the Archbishop will meet with the Metropolitan of Ioannina, Theoklitos. This meeting has caused particular interest in the corridors of the Petrakis Monastery.

According to sources, the Archbishop’s invitation was made by Professor Panagiotis Soukakis and Ieronymos accepted it without a second thought.

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.
