Christmas Service

On Sunday 9th January the parish of St. Silouan celebrated its first Christmas. As this was the first Sunday after Christmas, the feast of St. Joseph the Righteous, we were able to congratulate Fr. Joseph on his Saint’s day. Fr. Joseph spoke about the example of St. Joseph, the faith and humility by which he gave his service to God without the expectation of thanks or reward.
 
A congregation of nearly 50 people attended, and a festal meal was held afterwards, attended by Fr. William, priest of Holy Trinity, in whose parish hall we hold our services.
 
This was also the first time we used the portable iconostasis kindly loaned to us by the Parish of St. Nicholas, in Oxford, who now own their own Church (see www.stnicholas-oxford.org)

St Nicholas eve Food Fair

St. Nicholas Eve Eastern European Food Fair with Craft Exhibition and Sale by the Sisters of the St. Elizabeth Monastery, Minsk, Belarus took place on Saturday 18th December 2010 at the St. Boniface Church hall, Southampton.

The food was all really good, and it was impressive to see how much we were able to produce between us.
 
When we woke up to all the snow, it was obvious that God had a different plan in it all - yes, Shirley Road was nearly empty, but this meant that at the end of the day we were able to give a substantial amount of food to the St. James shelter for the homeless near the City Centre. Sr. Elena and Max came with me to take the food there, and it was very gratefully received. We were told there were actually some Eastern European people sheltering there, who would have been particularly comforted by the food.
 
It was St. Nicholas's day after all!

You can now view some pictures of the event in the Photogallery.
