On Friday, May 1, the Holy Synod of Bishops of the Orthodox Church in America, meeting via teleconference, under the presidency of His Beatitude Metropolitan Tikhon, in light of the current pandemic crisis, decided to postpone the celebrations for the Fiftieth Anniversary of the granting of the Tomos of Autocephaly, and the glorification of St. Herman of Alaska that had been previously announced.

At this point, if the situation permits, the Holy Synod looks to begin the celebration of these anniversaries in mid-November at its regular Fall Meeting. In 2021, the celebrations will continue with the Memorial Day Pilgrimage at St. Tikhon’s Monastery in May 2021, and conclude at the All-American Council in July 2021 in Baltimore, MD. Details for these events will be made available in due time.

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.
