The service of St Alban has now been uploaded to this site. In the near future Bishop Irinei's itinerary will be published. He hopes to be bringing the miraculous Hawaiian Myhrr Streaming Icon of the Mother of God. Details will appear shortly.
When Vladika Irinei visits in May he will ordain Deacon Spasimir Ivanov and Subdeacon Sergey Mironenko to the Priesthood and tonsure Timothy Phillips as a Reader. Please pray for them as they prepare themselves for this and pray that more will come forward to serve the Church in this way.
