Congratulations to Sub Deacon Antony (Robin Westwood) - Robert McBride - 01-06-2008
I was honoured to be invited and attend Sub Deanon Antony's first Celebration of The Divine Liturgy, celebrated by Abba Seraphim, at SS Philip & James, Cheltenham, on Saturday 31st May.
The service was surprisingly well attended, considering this being the first such event, with about 14 or so congregants.
It was a beautifully sunny day and an equally beautiful celebration of the ancient Rite which I found spiritually uplifting.
Thanks to Sub Deacon Antony and good luck for his Midlands Mission work.

Dear Father Robert,
Thank you very much for your kind message and once again thank you for attending yesterday.
I hope that this can be the start of a regular Fellowship mission here and I am hoping to expand this mission further in the future in the Midlands area, which at present lacks Orthodoxy in the British tradition.
God Bless You.
