First Christmas Services at the Parish of St Silouan, Southampton

Our Christmas was framed by two festive meals with many traditional Russian dishes: a Christmas Eve meal before the Vigil service, and one after the Liturgy on Old Style Christmas Day. There were also craft activities for the children. The two days had a wonderful atmosphere of joy and celebration.

Patronal Feast 24 September 2017

This year our Patronal Feast - the memory of St Silouan of Mt Athos coincided with the Sunday service. Thanks to our hardworking Parishioners, who managed to clear up the site around the Hall, we were able to have our first ever Festal Procession (Крестный Ход) after the Liturgy.

See pictures in our Photogallery. More - on Parish's Facebook page.
