Visit of the Kursk Root Icon of the Mother of God – Friday 6th June

We are invited again this year to join with the parish of Saint Elisabeth the New Martyr (ROCOR) in Wallasey as the miraculous icon tours the UK. 
I have written at length about this icon in past newsletters so if you want to read more, there are archives on our website and much other information through the web. 
Services will begin at approximately 6pm and the icon will leave the church promptly at 8pm. 
Directions to the church are on the Saint  Elisabeth’s website.

displaying their handicrafts at Dresden. I am hoping Fr Samuel will have more information
beforehand to indicate how long they are staying and if those of us who keep office hours
will be able to swell their pockets (if nuns have pockets) by buying something that evening.
