This will take place on the Sunday of All Saints being the First Sunday after Pentecost on the 26th June during a contribution lunch. The parish accounts will be published and we will decide upon certain projects like the sanding of the church floor and the refurbishment of the Library.
Pilgrimage in July. Father Paul and Matushka will be joining Father Vladimir on a pilgrimage to Svir and Solovets on July 25th, 2016 with pilgrims from our London Cathedral Parish. Reader Chad, Ludmila,Yulia and Svetlana (T) will now be joining the pilgrimage as well. More details can be found on the Cathedral website. Nearer the time, Father Paul will put some preparatory talks material on the holy sites that we will visit on the Diocesan Website.
New Candlestands. The London Cathedral Parish resolved to gift three candlestands to St Elisabeth's. As always, we are most grateful for the generosity of the Cathedral Parish towards us. Father Paul has taken two very old candlestands to Ormesby's of Scarisbrick to get them restored in the near future. There are photographs of them in use at the wedding of the Tsar's neice in London in 1922. Once they are ready they will be back by the central icon. As part of the furnishings of the London Imperial Russian Embassy, they would have been used by the Tsar to say his prayers on his visits to Britain. I have just received an estimate for their restoration which will cost in excess of £1000. If anyone would like to contribute specially to this, donations would be gratefully received.
