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 took two very old candlestands to Ormesby's of Scarisbrick to get them restored. There are photographs of them in use at the wedding of the Tsar's neice in London in 1922. They are already 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. Fr Paul will put detailed photos of them on the website shortly.
