Parishioners of the “Russian Exarchate” Enthusiastic about Joining the ROC

The news about accepting the leader and parishes of the “Russian exarchate” under jurisdiction of the Russian Orthodox Church inspired parishioners of the exarchate’s cathedral in France reported Interfax.

“I’ve just talked to a cleric of St. Alexander of Neva Cathedral in Paris. The church was full at the liturgy, parishioners with tears in their eyes thanked Archbishop John for a long-awaited decision,” deputy administrator of the Moscow Patriarchate Bishop Savva wrote in his Telegram channel.

Many people came from other parishes and conveyed their gratitude to Patriarch Kirill, he said. “Now we are with our Patriarch and with our Church”, they said.

“The joyful weariness from successful overcoming a long way was in the air,” the bishop cited his interlocutor.

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.
