Palm Sunday

Today is Palm Sunday. At the morning Service in the Church the emphasis was on the glorious entry of our Lord into the Holy City and the joyful reception by the people of Jerusalem.

In the afternoon we had fish and chips lunch at Golden Kitchen Restaurant in North Harrow, offered by the owners Petros and Anastasia Christofi, in support of our Church’s Fundraising campaign.

In the evening we had the first Holy Service of Holy and Great Week. It is called the Bridegroom Service. Our Lord Jesus Christ is the “Bridegroom” of the Church.

The sacred icon of the Bridegroom is taken in procession through the congregation as a blessing and then it is placed in front of the Icon-screen, for all people to come forward and venerate it.
