Services on 21-22 May, the Feast of the translation of the Relics of Saint Nicholas - 22/05/2020

On Thursday 21 May and Thursday 22 May we had services for the feast-day of the Translation of the Relics of Saint Nicholas from Myra in Lycia, modern-day Turkey, to Bari in Italy.  These were our first services since 21-22 March, the Third Sunday in Great Lent, and attendance was restricted by public health regulations to ten people in addition to essential workers.  On Thursday evening All-night Vigil with the blessing of wheat, wine, oil and five loaves was served.  As this feast-day of Saint Nicholas is the patronal feast of our parish, the customary blessing of water was served early on Friday morning.  A significant number of those present received Holy Communion.  A moleben to Saint Nicholas was served immediately after Divine Liturgy, following which the usual prayers were offered for the Patriarch and the hierarchs of the Russian Orthodox Church, the Australian and Russian lands, parish office-bearers, the people present, and for our departed founders and parishioners.
