On September 27, 2014, the first Orthodox Divine Liturgy was celebrated in the small town of Caldas da Raigha in central Portugal.
A new Eucharistic community formed in central Portugal

The service became possible thanks to numerous requests from the faithful of the Russian Orthodox Church residing in the region, the website of the Diocese of Chersonese reports.

The Divine Liturgy was celebrated by the rector of the Community of St. Xenia of St. Petersburg in Faro, Archpriest Ioann Gerovetsky, and Hegumen Petr (Prutyanu) at the old 16th century Catholic church of the Holy Spirit.

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.
