Our first Parish Meeting

On Sunday, Oct. 10th, the Divine Liturgy was celebrated. Preaching on the gospel for the day, about the miraculous catch of fish (Lk 5, 1-11), Fr Joseph said that this dramatically illustrated the difference between what we can accomplish by our own efforts alone compared with what is possible with God's blessing. That is why it is important for us to ask the Lord's help in all undertakings, both great and small.

After the parish lunch, we had the first meeting of our newly-formed Parish Assembly. The meeting formally adopted the Parish Statutes, and unanimously elected Dr Paula Nicholson as Churchwarden and Mrs Oxana Sweeny as Treasurer. A number of other matters relating to the life of the community were discussed. These decisions will come into effect following their approval by the Diocesan Bishop, Archbishop Elisey of Sourozh.
