Memorial dedicated at Bournemouth Church


At the conclusion of the Divine Liturgy at the Church of Christ the Saviour, Winton, Bournemouth, Abba Seraphim dedicated a brass memorial plaque to his late Mother, Joyce Edwards, who died last December. Although attached to the former Trotton Mission when she was living at Liphook, in Hampshire, she and Abba Seraphim’s step-father, Peter Edwards, were regular visitors to the Bournemouth Church over many years. At her request she was buried in the nearby Wimborne Road cemetery and her husband’s ashes, which had rested in the Cinerarium at the Bournemouth Church following his death, were later interred in the grave with Abba Seraphim’s mother.
