admin | 19 February 2013

On 16 February 2013, the Chinese students of the Moscow State University, the Pushkin State Russian Language Institute, and of the People’s Friendship University of Russia went on the educational trip “Meeting with Orthodoxy” to the Laura of the Holy Trinity and St Sergius.

The trip was organized by the Chinese Patriarchal Metochion in Moscow with the participation of the Orthodox Missionary School of the Synodal Missionary Department, and the Orthodox Missionary Society of St Serapion of Kozheozero.

The students were offered an informative excursion and visited the Moscow Theological Academy and Seminary, including the Bible Studies Faculty Museum, the Far East Centre, the Church of the Intersession of the Mother of God, and the Church and Archeological Cabinet.

The youth were shown a film about the Academy and the presentation “On the Orthodox Faith and Life in the Church” in the Chinese language, and met with the seminarists.

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.
