The representative of the Russian Orthodox Church in the kingdom of Thailand Archimandrite Oleg (Cherepanin), accompanied by his assistant Vladimir Buntilov, has visited the building area of the new Church in Bangkok where he familiarized himself with the work. Archimandrite Oleg noted that on the whole, work is being carried out in accordance with the approved schedule. By now the foundation and the plinth of the Church building have been completed, underground storage rooms have been arranged, concrete buttresses of walls and hipped coverings of the Church have been built and concrete stairs have been partially constructed.

Concurrently with the church, work on construction of the office building of the Representation of the Russian Orthodox Church in Thailand is being carried out.

The head of the building company that is building the church in Bangkok has assured that completion of all building and major finishing works is expected in late September–mid-October 2013. Some delay is possible in the case of floods or days-long heavy showers during the coming rainy season, reports the website of the Representative of the Russian Orthodox Church in the kingdom of Thailand.


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.
