Pilgrimage Weekend, October 2019

Pravmir.com team | 11 June 2019

October 5th—6th

We invite everyone to join us for the 2019 Pilgrimage Weekend. His Eminence Metropolitan Hilarion, First Hierarch of the Russian Church Abroad, will preside at the Divine Services. Visiting clergy are invited to concelebrate at the hierarchal services.

After Sunday morning’s Divine Liturgy, a festive banquet will be held in the spacious hall of the Holy Spirit Orthodox Church in Huntington. All are welcome to attend the banquet.

Many come to Pilgrimage Weekend every year from all over the country to join with the monks and with one another in liturgical worship and fellowship. Over the years, friendships have formed amongst fellow pilgrims, thus making Pilgrimage Weekend a reunion for old friends, a spiritually enriching experience for newcomers, and most importantly an occasion to partake of the Holy Mysteries and to strengthen one’s faith.

If you wish to make a donation to help offset the cost to the monastery of hosting Pilgrimage Weekend (food, rentals, etc.) you may do so here. Please be assured that making a donation is completely optional, and not a requirement in order to attend. Thank you, and may God reward you!

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.
