Patriarch Kirill leads ceremony at London’s Russian Orthodox Church

The visit of Patriarch Kirill is devoted to the 300th anniversary of the Russian Church’s presence in the British Isles. The Divine Liturgy, that includes the sanctification of the bells and frescoes on the outer walls of the Cathedral, will be the key event for the pastoral visit of Patriarch Kirill to the United Kingdom and Northern Ireland.

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.
