October 8. The church tent, which can hold up to 30 people, was installed on the premises of the Sign of the Holy Theotokos Cathedral. Divine services will be held at this transportable church not merely at this regional center, but also in those villages, where there are parishes, but no churches.

The tent is made of materials resistant to sun, wind, and rain. It weighs several dozen kilograms and can be installed for 30-40 minutes. The press office of the Kuzbass  Archdiocese announced that the production of the church tent was sponsored by a company called “Sibirskie Seti” (which is translated as “Siberian Network”), for which it was awarded the Archdiocesan Letter of Commendation by the Very Rev. Aristarkh (Smirnov), Metropolitan of Kemerovo and Prokopyevsk.

According to Father Arkady Rakhov, Chairman of the Missionary Department of the Kemerovo Diocese, clergymen had hoped for such a transportable church for a long time. And now, clergymen will be able to celebrate divine services not merely at inhabited localities, but also at military units situated in this region.

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.
