Archbishop Gabriel joined us for the celebration of the Vigil, during which he blessed the people, on the evening of Saturday of 30th October. This came at the end of a busy day during which he had spent the morning chairing a meeting of the clergy of our Deanery, as he had the previous evening.  After the vigil Archbishop Gabriel, the clergy and some members of the parish council were invited at the nearby home of Alexis Martinowsky, our parish treasurer, who prepared a most delicious meal!
