The Kosovo diet: nothing but cabbage...

Six-year-old Dragan loves Sundays. Not only because his family goes to church, but also because he knows that after Liturgy on Sunday he will eat chicken for lunch.  The thought of chicken sustains him throughout the whole week, when every single meal consists of … cabbage. Because cabbage is all his family can afford.   More Info >

Why Fr Nektariy needs your help now

Recently three devastating earthquakes rocked Mexico, killing over 400 people, and devastating the lives of thousands more... There is one person who gives those suffering in Mexico that which they cannot find elsewhere: love and practical assistance. This man is my personal hero - Schema-Archimandrite Nektariy of the Holy Trinity Monastery in Mexico City. Although a small quiet man in his mid 50s, he is a giant of Christian love and faith. This man chose the narrow path and doesn’t look back, even through much suffering. More Info >

Beltude sings - a slice of life from Haiti - 11/08/17

I had a fascinating meeting at the end of August. A little girl fascinated by spiritual singing and the French language. She lives with her parents south of Port-au-Prince, in the city of Léogâne. Her name is Beltude. She's a beautiful 12-year-old girl. With her slender build, she has smooth, glistening black skin and beautiful black eyes that illuminate her face. I was struck to see a child singing this much. Besides, she takes school very seriously. When it comes to defend herself, which often happens to her, this child is able to handle words until you get exhausted.

Saying "Thank you" does not convey what we feel in our hearts..." - 10/05/17

A few months ago we wrote to you about an absolutely terrible situation one of our priests ended up in when he started serving in Buenos Aires. Fr Boris and Matushka Ksenia Gladyshev moved to Argentina from Russia, where they had a good life – because they felt called to serve. They were supposed to receive a small stipend, but things did not work out. By the time their Bishop John of Caracass appealed to us for help, they had been through poverty, debt, and even a life-threatening situation.
