The Information Department of the Khabarovsk Diocese reported that following the Divine Liturgy, the troparion to the heavenly protector of the seminary was sung during a festive meal at the St. Innocent Chapel, which is situated on the seminary’s premises.

The translation was done by Van Tin (Valentine), a student of the Preparatory Department of the Khabarovsk Theological Seminary, who is a Chinese.

As the Pravmir.ru mentioned before, there is a Learning Center of Eastern Asia Culture on the premises of the Khabarovsk Theological Seminary. This center was founded in September, 2011 with the blessing of the Very Reverend Ignatius, Metropolitan of Khabarovsk and Outer Manchuria and President of the seminary.

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.
