Christ is risen!

Christ is risen! – Χριστὸς ἀνέστη! – Христос воскрес! – Христосъ воскресе! – Hristos a înviat! – Atgyfododd Crist! – Христос васкрсе! – ክርስቶስ ተነሳ ከሙታን – !المسيح قام! حقا قام – Христос възкресе!

Thank You!!!

Thank you to all those who helped so much throughout Holy Week through to Thomas Sunday:

  • To those who cared for the beauty of the church with decorations and cleaning, preparing the lamps etc
  • To those who prepared food for the Feasts and Episcopal Visits
  • To those who chanted
  • To those who helped with the manual labor – erecting marquees, cleaning the toilet etc
  • To those who kept order in the church and looked after new people who attended

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
