A new Eucharistic community formed in French Valance

The Sacrament of the Eucharist was celebrated in the Catholic church of St. Peter, the First Apostle, offered to the Orthodox community in Valance by the local Catholic diocese.

Worshipping at the church were émigrés from Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, Moldova, Serbia and Syria. The liturgy was celebrated by Hieromonk Joseph (Pavlinchuk), diocesan secretary for pastoral care of the Moldovan diaspora, and Hieromonk Nikodim (Pavlinchuk), rector of St. Seraphim’s in Montgeron, the website of the Diocese of Chersonese reports.

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.
