Orthodox communities in Portugal will make this Camino de Santiago walking pilgrimage for the eleventh time. It will involve pilgrims not only from Portugal but also other countries. At present, the pilgrims group include believers from Spain, Russia and Ukraine. 

This year, the walking pilgrimage will begin after the Divine Liturgy to be celebrated on July 15 at Portugal’s Valenca do Minho, with the participation of pilgrims groups from Lisbon and Port, Tomsk and Moscow (Russia), Nikolaev (Ukraine) and Soto Grande (Spain). 

On their way to Santiago de Compostela, the Orthodox pilgrims will worship at the Divine Liturgy. At the destination point, the pilgrims will pray at a thanksgiving at the Cathedral of St. James, the website of the diocese of Chersonese has reported.

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.
