Russian spiritual and cultural center to appear in Paris

admin | 25 December 2013

Prefect of Paris and Ile -de-France region, Jean Daubigny allowed the construction of a Russian Orthodox spiritual and cultural center in Paris.

Reportedly, the construction of the complex, which will consist of a church, a  seminary, a library and a center for meetings of the Russian community, will begin in June 2014, immediately after existing buildings are demolished.

The administration of the President of Russia purchased 4.2 thousand square meters of land in Paris​​ for the construction of an Orthodox cathedral back in 2010.


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.
