On Monday 18 December and Tuesday 19 December, the lesser patronal feast of our church, we had services in honour of Saint Nicholas of Myra in Lycia. All-night vigil with the blessing of five loaves, wheat, wine and oil was served on Monday evening and Divine Liturgy was served on Tuesday morning. Following the Prayer before the Amvon a brief moleben to Saint Nicholas was served at which our parishioners and their families, together with others who have asked for our prayers, were commemorated by name. After the dismissal, the rector congratulated parish Warden Nikolai Goura and Parish Council member Nicholas (Dean) Crawford, both of whom were celebrating their name-day. He thanked them both for their work for the parish and wishing them every blessing from God. Many years was then sung for them both, after which those present enjoyed a festive meal in the church hall.
