Last night (on St. Panteleimon Eve) we sung in our new Church the Holy Service of Great and Festal Vespers.
His Grace Bishop Athanasios of Tropaiou presided; Fr. Theophanis, Fr. Anastasios and Deacon Constantinos took part in the Service.
Many chanters from various Greek Orthodox Parishes in London attended the Service and offered their good voices to the celebration.
The congregation consisted of a very good turn up of many people, both members of our Church as well as pilgrims from other areas.
At the end of the Service the holy icon of St. Panteleimon was taken in a procession around the Church.
After the Service the Ladies of our Church welcomed everyone at the Church Hall and offered delicious refreshments.
