Deacon Rostislav Valikhnovsky, Honored Doctor of Ukraine, member of the Presidium of the All-Ukrainian Association of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgeons, was ordained a priest, reports Foma.in.ua.

The ordination took place on August 19, 2020, on the feast of the Transfiguration of the Lord. The priestly ordination was performed by His Beatitude Metropolitan Onuphry of Kiev and All Ukraine during the Divine Liturgy at St. Nicholas Church in the residence of the Primate of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church.

“On the Feast of the Transfiguration of the Lord by the grace of God and by the prayers of the elder and Vladyka, His Beatitude Onuphry, I was honored to be ordained to the priesthood. Glory to God and to the Most Holy Theotokos! Have a blessed feast, dear ones!” Father Rostislav wrote on his Facebook page yesterday.

The deacon’s ordination of the famous doctor took place on May 22, 2019.

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.
