The Metropolitan Visits St Aidan of Lindisfarne, Manchester

The Metropolitan visited the parish of St Aidan of Lindisfarne over the weekend of 11th / 12th March 2017.  On Saturday evening after Great Vespers the bishop met with nearly 40 parishioners to give a talk on fasting and to answer the questions of the faithful.  On the Lord’s Day, the second Sunday of Great Lent, Sayedna served the Hierarchical Divine Liturgy with Fr Gregory and Fr Emmanuel.  A reception / agape was held afterwards with their usual provision of glorious (yet fasting food) from the many nations represented.  What a great blessing for the Archdiocese to be such a welcoming home for so many languages and cultures all under the same roof!  A photoalbum of the weekend may be found here.
