PRAVMIR. Archbishop Ambrose of Peterhof carried out the rite of joining the Orthodox Church of the Catholic priest Constatine Simon.

Deacon Paul Yermylov shared news of this conversion of a Catholic priest into the Russian Orthodox Church on his Facebook page.

This is not the first time a Catholic priest has decide to join the Orthodox Church.

For example, thirty-six year old Cuban Archimandrite Jerome (Espinoza), the famous chemist and graduate of a Catholic theological school, dramatically changed his life when he took monastic vows and devoted himself to serving the Orthodox Church.

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.
