Coronavirus update: 09/01/2021

Dear parishioners, we have changed the rules for attending services. For services within the Church, only 40 people can be into the upper church, and only 20 people into the lower church. Distance inside the church 1.5 - 2.0 m. One cannot expect communion outside the Church. On Sundays, you can come after the late service for communion and confession. Those who wish to receive the Holy Communion after the Liturgy must contact Fr. Vitaly 07935700721.

Charity Fair

In the afternoon of 6th March the parish house of the Cathedral at 57 Harvard Rd hosted a charity fair. The event was organised by the Sisterhood of St Xenia, and the raised funds totalled one thousand and fifty five pounds.

All these funds will go towards:

  1. Maintenance of pupils at the Orthodox School for girls in Bethany, Palestine (link in Russian).
  2. Social and psychological rehabilitation centre for children with no parental care, Lisichansk, Ukraine.
  3. Donetsk charity “Maximal”, which cares for seriously ill and young mothers.

About two hundred people visited the fair, regaling with delicious pies and other foods made by our parishioners, including children – all as part of their donations to the fair. A musical concert by children and adults gave the fair a special sounding. About twenty parishioners worked particularly hard to organise the fair. The Sisterhood would like to thank everyone who took part in the fair, the organisers, other toilers, and all the people, including numerous neighbours from Harvard Road, who supported the event financially.
