Sacred Objects from the Serbian Monastery of Chilandar on Mount Athos Have Arrived in St. Petersburg

PRAVMIR. The relics of Serbian saints and a part of the Holy Cross from the Serbian monastery of Chilandar (Mount Athos) will stay at the Novodevichy Convent of St. Petersburg from June 2-4.

In between services, molebens will be served before the sacred objects, relates the news agency “Life-giving Water.”

The Serbian sacred objects have been brought to St. Petersburg in honor of the 100th anniversary of the First World War, which united the Serbian and Russian people. Organizers of the event are the Charitable Foundation “Mt. Athos Offering” and the brotherhood called “Sons of Mt. Athos.” The purpose of their activities is to unite Orthodox Christians, regardless of ethnicity, nationality, political opinion, and national borders.

Earlier the sacred objects could be venerated in the city of Vladimir.

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.
