prince-of-walesThe Prince of Wales braved a heavy downpour to visit an ancient church in Gwynedd earlier this week.

He was accompanied by the Duchess of Cornwall for the visit to St Beuno’s Church, Pistyll, in the north-west of Wales.

The hospice church dates back to the 6th century and was frequented by pilgrims on their way to Bardsey Island, an important religious site in medieval times owing to the monastery built there by Saint Cadfan in the sixth century.

During the royal visit, the floor was covered with wild medicinal herbs and rushes as is tradition at the church during Christmas, Easter and the harvest festival Lammas.

The visit to the church was made as part of their summer tour of Wales.  The Prince and Duchess also made a visit to the set of BBC1’s Doctor Who show in Cardiff, where they met members of the cast and production team.

Prince Charles was to officially open the new headquarters of the Prince’s Trust Cymru in Cardiff.

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.
