Christmas Message of His Eminence Archbishop Gabriel of Comana
Dear brothers and sisters in Christ, “Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and the God of all comfort who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble…” (2 Corinthians 1: 3-4)
The Parish of The Dormition of the Mother of God in London, saw two ordinations last Sunday: those of Fr Alexander Willis and Dn Alban Coombes. A report will follow shortly, but in the meantime, here are the photos from the occasion.
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!
