Russian Church will help establish Orthodox education in Donbass

Moscow, September 1, 2022     

With the help of the Russian Orthodox Church, an Orthodox education course will be introduced in schools in the Donbass and other areas.

Sergei Platonov, the head of Synodal Department of Religious Education and Catechesis’ press service, told TASS yesterday that the Department will supports schools in implementing the Fundamentals of Religious Cultures and Secular Ethics program that was introduced in Russia in 2014.

Platonov also emphasized that many dioceses and heads of educational institutions within the Russian Church have been providing comprehensive assistance to children from Donbass who, forced to leave their homes due to shelling, were placed in Orthodox camps, schools, and kindergartens this summer.

To the Russian Orthodox haters and it’s murdering empire. Understand that God stands only with Russia. You will be defeated when all is said and done and the earth will have less warmongers and haters. How do I know? Look at the photo in this article and you will understand, that is only if you have any love of Christ in your soul.

This is great news. God bless the Russian Orthodox Church. Orthodox Children in every Orthodox Land should be taught about our Orthodox Faith in public schools. Only good comes from this my friends, only good. I find it interesting that in Russia the public schools teach positively about Christianity, but do they in Western Countries? Jesus said: "He who is ashamed of Me, My Father will be ashamed of him!". Glory be to our God! Just my humble opinion.
