Screen Shot 2013-07-12 at 4.04.40 PMThe III International Youth Camp “Tikhvin-2013: Touch Holiness” is now offering the opportunity to adhere to spiritual values and work in a monastery. Orthodox youth from St Petersburg, Moscow, Kursk, Siberia, the United States and Canada are helping restore the ancient Russian convent of the 16 th century—the Tikhvin Vvedensky Monastery, and participate in spiritual life.

The program was organized by the Tikhvin Diocesan Youth Department and is operating with the blessing of His Grace Bishop Mstislav of Tikhvin and Lodeynopol. Participating in the camp are also clergymen and young people from the Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia.

The camp offers participation in joint labor, educational lectures, musical and creative performances and sporting events. A forum with lectures of the life of Russian communities abroad and contemporary Russian language will be offered. There will also be excursions to Alexandro-Svirsky, Vvedeno-Oyatsky, Pokrovo-Tervenichesky, Antonievo-Dymsky monasteries and a skete in the town of Senno.

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.
