Young adults from across North America will gather this coming October 6-8, here for a new conference being organized by Orthodox churches in the Atlanta area.

The CONNECT Conference is a new event for Orthodox Christian young adults (ages 20 – 39). According to Callie Corley, one of the organizers, “This conference offers an opportunity for young adults to retreat, recharge, and reconnect with Christ, the Church, and other Orthodox Christians.”

Speakers at the conference include His Grace, Bishop Gregory of Nyssa, of the American Carpatho-Russian Orthodox Diocese of the U.S.A., along with clergy and Orthodox laity who will speak on the theme of “Finding Christ in Every Day Life.”

“Many young Orthodox Christians lose their connection to the Church after high school,” Callie noted. “This pan-Orthodox initiative is intended to help young adults stay connected to their Faith and maintain their devotion to Christ.”

Registration is now open and questions may be direct to Callie Corley at

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.
