On Saturday and Sunday 24-25 August the parish rector presided at services for the Afterfeast of the Transfiguration of the Lord and in honour of the Holy Martyrs Photius and Anicetus. It being the last service in our parish before the Great Feast of the Dormition of the Mother of God, many of the faithful took the opportunity to confess and receive Holy Communion. Following Divine Liturgy, a memorial litia was served for the late ever-memorable Alexander Georgievich Medwedew, it being the eve of the eighth anniversary of his repose. Mr Medwedew was for many years both a chorister and the Warden of our parish, and it was he who led the Building Committee for our current church. May his memory be eternal!
