Feast of Saint Thekla

Today we commemorate the memory of Saint Thekla. Thus, we had a Divine Liturgy at our Church and many people came to honour this Protomartyr Saint.

This Saint was from the city of Iconium. When she was eighteen years of age, she was instructed in the Faith of Christ and the hope of the resurrection by the Apostle Paul, whom also she followed, forsaking her betrothed and espousing a life of virginity for the sake of the Heavenly Bridegroom. Having preached Christ in various cities and suffered many things, she reposed in Seleucia of Cilicia at the age of 90.

The building works have continued today at our site.

We have really been amazed by the hard working attitude of all engineers and workers of John Doyle Company.

It is also the feast day of St Silouan the Athonite, celebrated in the Monastery of Essex.
