On July 17, 2018, the commemoration day of the Royal Passion-bearers and the centenary of their martyrdom, the Divine Liturgy was celebrated at the St. Sergius of Radonezh church in Johannesburg. After the service, the opening of an exhibition ‘The Last Romanovs’ was opened at the parish center.

The photo exhibition presenting the photographs from the Romanovs’ personal archives was organized by the Parish of St. Sergius with the support of the Rossotrudnichestvo (Federal Agency for the Commonwealth of Independent States, Compatriots Living Abroad and International Humanitarian Cooperation) representation in South Africa and the pravoslavie.ru portal.

Along with the parishioners, the opening of the exhibition was attended by Archimandrite Jacobus (van der Riet), a cleric of the Orthodox Church of Alexandria diocese of Johannesburg, and Afrikaners who came to honour the memory of the last Russian tsar. They laid flowers at the Icon of the Royal Passion-bearers and took part with great interest in a talk about the Romanovs family, the website of the St. Sergius church in Johannesburg has reported.

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 - Pravmir.ru, Neinvalid.ru, Matrony.ru and Pravmir.com. 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.
