Throughout the month of May, His Grace Bishop Irenei will lead a series of spiritual talks at the Diocesan Cathedral in Harvard Road, as well as in the St Vladimir Parish in Cheltenham and the Parish of St John in Colchester.
As is customary with Bishop Irenei's talks, these will not be 'lectures' or academic reflections, but practical talks focussed on the Church's authoritative teaching with regard to the Christian life.
Schedule of talks:
- At the LONDON CATHEDRAL:
- Friday, 4th May: 6.15 p.m. — Moleben with Akafist to the Theotokos, followed by talk.
