Patriarch of Moscow and all Russia to visit Georgia

Nana Kirtzkhalia | 26 January 2014

Patriarch of Moscow and all Russia, Kirill plans to visit Georgia.

Details of the Russian church’s visit to Georgia will be known in two weeks, Georgian patriarch’s protopresbyter, Tbilisi Theological Academy Rector Giorgi Zviadadze told journalists on Friday.

“When a new patriarch is enthroned in line with tradition, he visits all the local churches. These for example, are the Constantinople church, Alexandria church, Jerusalem church, Georgian church, Serbian church, Romanian church and Bulgarian church. This is a manifestation of brotherhood and unity. Kirill has not yet been to Georgia since becoming patriarch of Moscow and All Russia and that is why he will visit Georgia as a new patriarch,” Zviadadze said.

He went on to add that Catholicos Patriarch of all Georgia, Ilia II will send his representatives to Moscow for further details of the visit.

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.
