Feast of St Spyridon
On December 12th, the Orthodox Church celebrated the Feast of our Patron Saint, SPYRIDON the Miracle-Worker, Bishop of Trimythounda, blessed amongst the Holy Fathers of the Church.

On the eve of St Spyridon's Feast Day, 11th December at 7.30 p.m, the Vespers Service (Esperinos) was conducted by His Grace Bishop Seraphim of Apollonia. Following the Vespers Service and the Blessing of the Five Loaves (Artoklasia), St Spyridon Parish offered the annual Celebratory Dinner in the Church Hall as our hospitality to all the faithful present on the evening.
