On Saturday 27th January 2018 a LITURGICAL SERVICE WORKSHOP will be held in the Russian Orthodox Cathedral of the Dormition, Harvard Road, London. Led by His Grace Bishop Irenei of Sacramento and Schema-Subdeacon Anthony, this will be a day dedicated to learning the liturgical customs of the ROCOR tradition, in order to foster unity of practice and beauty in the Divine Services across the Diocese. The day is being tailor-suited to ALL RANKS: especially Readers and Subdeacons (or those who serve in these roles, without being ordained; or who are thinking of being tonsured in future), and ALSO Deacons and Priests, for whom there will be a special session with Bishop Irenei.
The workshop is open to all clergy and those with a blessing for Altar service, throughout the Diocese (please confirm your attendance via the Diocesan Chancellor); and if you are from outside the Diocese of Great Britain and Ireland of the ROCOR but feel you might benefit from this training, you will also be most welcome — please contact our Diocesan Chancellor, Archpriest Paul Elliott to request that we book you a place.
Welcome the Diocese's recently revamped web site. We invite you to explore the variety of new content already in place, and ask your patience as we continue to transfer older archival items to the new system, as well as expand our materials with new information over the coming months.
