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.
