Abba Seraphim will attend Holy Synod

Despite having to cancel the planned BOC Pilgrimage to Egypt as a result of the BA strike, Abba Seraphim will still attend the annual meeting of the Holy Synod in Cairo. Having re-booked with other airlines he will travel by a tortuous route via Paris (Air France) on the outward journey and Rome (Alitalia) on the return, with journey time being much longer because of the stopovers involved. Abba Seraphim will stay in Cairo just the two nights necessary for him to attend the Holy Synod and the Feast of Pentecost Liturgy at St. Mark’s Cathedral.
