When a parish reaches the 100-year milestone, the word “anniversary” does not do justice to the century-long existence: not only of an institution but also of a beautiful extended family. On April 12 the parish of Sts. Constantine and Helen, whose home is the majestic, beautifully-renovated Byzantine domed basilica in downtown Brooklyn, begins its year-long celebration with a “Homecoming Weekend.” The first day has a youth focus. After Salutations to the Theotokos, the parish GOYA and the chapters of their sister parishes are invited to a Lenten meal. On April 13 the community welcomes back one of its most beloved and revered pastors, Rev. Fr. Alkiviadis Calivas, and hosts a special tribute the parish’s Boy Scout Troop 63. Calivas will preside over Great Vespers that will feature the Byzantine Choir of Holy Cross Theological Seminary at 6:30PM followed by a lenten meal in the Church hall.
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.
