Project Tikhvin will sponsor young people of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia and assist them in the expenses of travel. The group will visit Russia from the end of June until the middle of July. Pilgrims will visit Moscow, St Petersburg and Tikhvin. In all places there will be tours of holy places. The group has been invited to form a youth choir and participate in a northern village folk festival.

The trip will be organized with the blessing of His Eminence Metropolitan Barsonophy of St Petersburg and His Grace Bishop Mstislav of Tikhvin in conjunction with the St Alexander Nevsky Lavra. Youth from America as well as from all over Russia will participate in the restoration project. The group is limited to fifteen participants. All interested must make a commitment and contact the project director, Archpriest Alexis Duncan, before Great Lent. Tickets and visas must be arranged by that time. Please contact Fr Alexis as soon as possible to express your interest at fr.alexis.duncan@gmail.com.

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.
