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.

Our first Patronal Festival

The first patronal festival of the Parish of Saint Silouan of Mount Athos was celebrated on Saturday 25th September, on the Saturday before the Elevation of the Precious and Life-giving Cross. Fr Joseph, in his homily, 
showed how the life of St. Silouan was a fulfilment of the Gospel for that day. (Matt.10:37-11:1): leaving his beloved family, St. Silouan took up the cross as a monk on Mount Athos. St. Silouan’s life and teaching show how to take up the cross, each one according to his or her given measure, in the humble acceptance of trials and adversity.
 
The Liturgy was followed by a moleben to St. Silouan, and a festal meal enjoyed by all. We were joined by Fr William Perry from the parish of Holy Trinity, by whose kindness we have been able to use the church hall for our services.
