On Thursday 27 August and Friday 28 August we had services for the Great Feast of the Dormition of the Mother of God. All-night Vigil with the blessing of wheat, wine, oil and five loaves was served on Thursday evening and Divine Liturgy was served on Friday morning. A number of friends from the Gosford parish joined us on the day of the feast. As it was sixty-six years to the day since the first Russian Orthodox services in the Hunter Valley, prayers of thanksgiving were offered at Divine Liturgy during the Litany of Fervent Supplication. Following the dismissal, the parish rector announced that the parish Annual General Meeting would be held on Sunday 27 September 2015.
