Two youngsters ordained as Epsaltoi

Now that his visual problems have improved following his recent operation at Moorfield’s Eye Hospital in London, Abba James drove His Beatitude Abba Seraphim to celebrate the Divine Liturgy at the Church of Christ the Saviour at Winton, Bournemouth, which they had last been to only thirteen months previously. They were supported by Hieromonk John Ives and Epsaltos Yuriy Kot but during the Liturgy Abba Seraphim ordained the two brothers, Dmitriy Sitnikov (aged 15) & Gregory Sitnikov (aged 10) as Epsaltoi as they have been regularly assisting Hieromonk John when he celebrates the Liturgy there.
