Christ is Risen !

Christ is Risen ! Although we deeply regret the necessity not to maintain public worship in British Orthodox churches during the current pandemic, our clergy are now privately celebrating the Divine Liturgy in their homes in order to still maintain the faithful in prayer during Eucharistic celebrations. The attached homily on our Lord’s Resurrection, delivered by Abba Seraphim at our Chatham Church two years ago,is still highly relevant to our spirituality, not only for today’s Feast of Holy Pascha, but also for each Lord’s Day which also commemorates the Resurrection and also at this international time of trial when so many people have died as a result of being infected by the coronavirus. In addition to praising God for our Lord’s resurrection from the dead, we are deeply thankful for the promise of resurrection for the faithful departed and of the eternal life, which is given to all the faithful in Christ.
