Each year during Christmas Break Orthodox Christian Fellowship (OCF) College Conferences host hundreds of college students from across North America for four days of fellowship, prayer, and some of the best Orthodox speakers around. The conferences are currently held at the Antiochian Village in Pennsylvania and St. Nicholas Ranch in California. This year’s theme is “Behold now, what is so good or so pleasant as for brothers to dwell together in unity?” from Psalm 132:1.

The year’s Keynote Speaker for the College Conference West is His Eminence, Archbishop Benjamin, Archbishop of San Francisco and the West, Orthodox Church in America (OCA). In the East, the Keynote Speaker is His Grace, Bishop Gregory of Nyssa, Primate of the American Carpatho-Russian Orthodox Diocese of the USA.

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.
