After the service celebrated by Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and All Russia Orthodox youth will congratulate him at the square before the cathedral, the Information Service of the Youth Department of the Moscow City Diocese told Interfax-Religion.

The participants will form a giant Easter egg.

They will tell a story about Maria’s of Magdala meeting with Emperor Tiberius, during the performance colors of the figure and the Easter egg will change dynamically.

After the flashmob the Orthodox youth will invite everyone to taste a 1.5 ton Easter cake, blessed by the primate on the Great Saturday. The Easter cake will be decorated with a figure of the Cathedral of Christ the Savior and the patriarchal bridge from meringue and mastic and depiction of the Moskva River and landscapes of the capital.

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.
