28th Sunday after Pentecost

On December 17, on the 28th Sunday after Pentecost, feast of the Holy Great Martyr Barbara, our parish priest Abbot Eutychius (Dovgan) served the Divine Liturgy in our temple.

The choir director, Olga Roussanow nicely performed proper hymns during preparation for Holy Communion and read the homily prepared by our former Rector, Archpriest Igor Tarasov on the appointed Gospel lesson.

At the end of the Liturgy Fr. Eutychius preached a short sermon in Russian. He also greeted our Sacristan, Andrew Malyshev on his past name day and proclaimed a Polychronion to him.
