Moscow, April 28, Interfax - Female race on bikes almost 1,500 km long starts on Sunday from the Moscow church of Myrrh-Bearing Women.

The race, which will take place in a form of pilgrimage and will be timed for the Feast of Myrrh-Bearing Women, will end on May 6 in the Holy Trinity – St. Sergius Laura, organizers told Interfax-Religion.

Participants will also visit several monasteries in Murom in the Vladimir Region, shrines of Sarov and Diveyevo in the Nizhny Novgorod Region, connected with St. Seraphim of Sarov, and monasteries of Suzdal.

The action is supported by the Moscow Patriarchate’s Pilgrimage Center and the Federation of Moto Tourism of Russia.

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.
