“Head of the municipality promised to help in the question and suggested to locate a new church in one of the two young and developing districts of the city,” the Communication Service of the Synodal Department for External Church Relations reports on its website on Wednesday.

This question was also discussed at a meeting in the Annunciation Church held by Trias, Russian General Consul in Barcelona Yury Klimenko and church rector Hegumen Seraphim (Pavlov).

The Annunciation church complex is used not only for celebrating divine services, there are also lessons of the Sunday school, lessons of the Catalan language, a library and canteen. The church iconostasis has an icon of St. Eulalia – holy protector of Barcelona.

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.
