Belated Paschal Saturday Liturgy to Be Held in Churches across Greece team | 26 May 2020

At midnight on May 26, churches around Greece are to hold Paschal Saturday services after they had been banned in March due to the lockdown, reports the Greek Herald.

The faithful are to gather in churches and sing Resurrection hymns and experience the solemn atmosphere of the service.

Churches were reopened on May 17 after an almost two-month lockdown, which resulted in Paschal services taking place without congregations.

Meanwhile in Australia, certain churches have re-opened with strict hygiene precautions such as hand sanitiser at the door, and many are only allowing 10 people inside the church and 20 people outside (with social distancing measures enforced).

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.
