The service began with the Sunday Martins. It was followed by the Divine Liturgy of St. Basil the Great.

Prayers were said in Arabic, English, Church Slavonic and Greek.

After the liturgy, the archpastors celebrated the Office of the Triumph of Orthodoxy with a traditional procession with the cross and the reading of the Seventh Ecumenical Council decision on the veneration of icons.

Metropolitan Joseph greeted the congregation on the occasion of the common Orthodox feast and thanked his concelebrants from fraternal Local Churches for the joy of communion in prayer.

During the fraternal repast, the archpastors discussed topical issues of inter-Orthodox cooperation in the American continent and Orthodox mission in today’s world, the website of the Patriarchal Parishes in the USA reports.

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.
