Metropolitan Athenagoras Makes Historical Trip to Jamaica

The Metropolitan Archbishop Athenagoras currently serves as the Ruling Hierarch of the Greek Orthodox Metropolis of Mexico, Central America, Columbia, Venezuela, and the Caribbean Islands under the jurisdiction of the Ecumenical Patriarch of Constantinople in Turkey.

The trip will begin this Friday where Metropolitan Archbishop Athenagoras will travel to the Caribbean island to meet with the Faithful of the Jamaica Orthodox Mission which was established in 2015 by the Metropolitan-Archbishop of Mexico. His trip will revolve around guiding the Church and spreading the Orthodox Christian Faith in Jamaica.

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.
