Patriarch in Krymsk to Lead Remembrance, Aid Efforts

admin | 24 July 2012

Patriarch Kirill has arrived in the flood-stricken town of Krymsk on a mission to distribute Church aid and present a posthumous Church award to the widow of a local policeman who sacrificed his life to save others when the disaster struck.

Sergeant Viacheslav Gorbunov rescued 35 people including 8 children.

The Patriarch is also expected to lead a remembrance service at the town’s Church of St Michael. The parish has already collected and distributed some 850 tons of emergency aid to the flooded households.

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.

Dear Friends,

Our website exists owing to your generous assistance, thanks to the funds donated by our beloved readers.

Please assist us in the continuation of our work.
