Military Engineers Help Erect an Orthodox Field Church in Kamchatka

The church was placed on the military unit’s field camp, Interfax-Religion notes.

The personnel management and engineering forces of the military unit took an active role in the church’s establishment. The Assistant Commander for work with religious soldiers assisted the Orthodox soldiers.

This week, work on the church’s interior will be completed and its consecration will take place.

Soldiers will be able to go to Confession and receive the Mystery of Baptism in the church.

Soon the soldiers of the missile and artillery forces, while staying in the field camp, will be able to attend church services and receive the blessing of a Russian Orthodox Church clergyman to defend their Fatherland.

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.
