The Orthodox religion is being rethought, not only taking into account the modern realities and needs of society and state, but based on the responsibilities of the Church that are traditionally assigned to her. The article deals with public functions of the parish clergy in the Synodal period in the example of the clergy of the Diocese of Astrakhan. As the source studies used “Astrakhan diocesan news”.
