Two Invitations

1st March 2014 is the nearest Saturday to the feast of Saint Chad.
We are invited to attend a Divine Liturgy hosted by the Community of Saint
Chad in Rugby at 10am in Lichfield Cathedral (Lady Chapel).
Kairos will begin at 9:30am, which is a little early but has to fit with the kind
permissions of the Dean & Chapter of the Cathedral.
1st March is the feast of Saint David and Saint Evdokia, so their feasts will be
celebrated and that of Saint Chad anticipated.

9th March 2014 is the Sunday of Orthodoxy which we will celebrate in Dresden
with a Procession of Icons – outside if the weather is good.
Bring an icon with you or if you forget, find one in church. There are many!
Last year a small group of us travelled to Erdington in Birmingham for pan-
Orthodox Great Vespers in the Greek Orthodox church attended by
Metropolitan Kallistos.
This year we are invited to the church of the Nativity of the Mother of God in
Walsall by Father John for Great Vespers at 6pm.

Advance notice of Derbyshire Events from Chris Tsielepi
Father Edwin from Chesterfield & Sheffield has agreed to celebrate.

Friday 25th April Bright Friday Feast of the Life-giving Spring
(Not sure where this is being held, so I will find out in time
for the April newsletter).

Saturday 21st June Blessing of the Waters (11am) and Akathist (2pm) at the
Pisani Chapel near Cromford.

Saturday 26th July Divine Liturgy at Saint Martin’s church in Stoney
Middleton (11am) followed by Blessing of the Waters.
This coincides with the Well Dressing at Stoney Middleton
and is always a wonderful day.
