On 29 July 2012, a delegation of the Bulgarian Orthodox Church arrived in Ukraine to take part in the celebration of the 20th anniversary of His Beatitude Metropolitan Vladimir’s tenure of office. The delegation visited the Monastery of the Entrance into the Temple of the Birth-Giver of God in Kiev.

The Divine Liturgy was celebrated at the main church of the monastery by Metropolitan Gavriil of Loveč, head of the delegation, together with Metropolitan Ioann of Snepole, who accompanied a delegation led by Bishop Nikodim of Rovenki, a vicar of the Lugansk diocese; archimandrite Damian (Davydov), abbot of the monastery; the brethren and ordained guests.

Archimandrite Damian thanked Metropolitan Gavriil for common worship and asked for his prayers for the brethren of the monastery and parishioners.

Members of the delegation visited St. Demetrius’ church-sepulchre with the relics of St. Dimitra of Kiev, a native of Bulgaria, who built the first church of the monastery in the 19th century.


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.
