The Synod decided, in particular, to award His Holiness Kirill, Patriarch of Moscow and All Russia, the Order of the Metropolia, the highest decoration of the Orthodox Church of Moldova, on the occasion of his 70thbirthday.

Metropolitan Vladimir made a report on the major events held by the Orthodox Church in Moldova, among them the canonization of St. Gabriel (Banulescu Bodoni), Metropolitan of Chisinau and Hotin, and Blessed Agafia (Maranchuk), a nun from the Kushelovka Convent of the Dormition.

By the decision of the Synod, Kishinev Seminary has been renamed in honour of St. Gabriel, Metropolitan of Chisinau and Hotin.

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.
