On 24 February 2013, the Russian Orthodox Church’s Parish of St Patrick in Ireland organized a fair at the Edmund Rice International Heritage Centre in Waterford. Sold at the fair were handmade articles and pastry. The money raised was transferred to the parish Sunday school’s fund. Among those attending the fair were many Irish families, as well as families from Poland, Czech Republic, and Caribbean islands.


The parish children’s choir opened the festival. Children who came to the fair engaged in various contests, took drawing lessons and participated in some other activities. The festival culminated in a performance of 12-year-old Dylan Kirny, Munster Irish Dancing Champion.

Many entries were made in the fair’s guestbook. Visitors thanked the organizers and expressed their hope for such festivals to be held on a more regular basis. It will enable the Russian Orthodox parish to play a more important part in the life of Waterford, web-site of the Church of Holy Apostles Peter and Paul in Dublin 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.
