The route will retrace the Great Russian Northern Route, which is more than 1,000 years old. According to Interfax, the distance of the route will be 1,500 kilometers.

“We should make this journey a prayerful path for pilgrims. Second, this journey will be important for those who lead a healthy lifestyle,” said a participant in the procession, the traveler Dmitry Sagalako.

He stated that when he was on the Solovetsky islands, he discovered that this path existed and that a large number of people had walked it in order to change their lives.

Approximately forty people will start on the procession from Moscow, which will cover seven Russian regions. On the way to the monastery, other participants, made up of local residents, will join the main group.

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.
