5youthchoiryasenovo13_2On Sunday, May 26, 2013, after evening divine services in the Church of the Protection of the Mother of God, a combined youth choir of singers of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia, led by seminarian Nicholas Kotar of Holy Trinity Seminary in Jordanville, NY, gave a performance.

The young people, from various parishes in the USA, sang on the theme of the 400th anniversary of the Romanov Dynasty. The choir was accompanied by Protopriest Andrei Sommer, Vice President of ROCOR’s Synodal Youth Department. The literary-musical program was dedicated to the memory of Holy Grand Duchess Elizaveta Feodorovna, with singing alternating with the reading of her letters, and excerpts from a book on the saint by Lyubov Miller.

Parishioners of Protection Church and the Church of SS Peter and Paul in Yasenevo were in attendance, as well as a number of handicapped people living in Veteran’s Home No. 6, who were transported by an Orthodox youth brotherhood known as Pokrov [“protection”].

At the conclusion of the performance, Archimandrite Melchisedek (Artyukhin), the parish rector, expressed heartfelt thanks to the performers for their wonderful singing and the spiritual joy they brought.

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.
