Weekly religious programs broadcast by Russian language TV in Pattaya [Thailand]

The Representation of the Russian Orthodox Church in Thailand received a proposal from the leadership of Russian-language TV channel 1 RU in Pattaya about the possibility of broadcasting weekly religious programs. After reading the proposal and weighing the possibilities, the Representation of the Russian Orthodox Church agreed to prepare and conduct the programs. First installment, about preparations for Lent and an explanation of the Gospel parable of the prodigal son, conducted by Archimandrite Oleg (Cherepanin) has already aired. The success of this undertaking and the relevance of spiritual themes - is obvious. Immediately after the broadcast, some Russian-language newspapers in Pattaya asked for permission to reprint the transcript of the spiritual discussions on their pages.

Archimandrite Oleg (Cherepanin), the representative of the Russian Orthodox Church (Moscow Patriarchate) in Thailand, asked Orthodox parishes in the Kingdom to more actively cooperate with Russian-language media in the Kingdom.
