They are looking for a temporary home. They may go to St Michael's, but if any one else can help then do get in touch with them.
Oh no...That beautiful iconostasis...Eleison kai soson imas.
How awful. I hope if it's possible that your parish or other churches can help out a bit in providing a place for some services if possible. [Here in "God's own fire country" it's not unusual for a church of a different denomination to offer to offer their parish as a place to hold services while the affected parish gets back on its feet.] God bless them.
prayers offered. How sad.I hope they find solace and a new place for Liturgy soon.
I expect to see several of the Brighton congregation on Sunday. I shall pass on the kind good wishes of the posters here.
The icons were beautiful. Very disturbing.I suspect a particle of hot charcoal from the incense as a likely cause. This is a fire hazard we should all take more seriously.If you look on the sacristy floor at Mary Magdalens you will see where the floor had started to smoulder. I happened to come across it and poured a bucket of water on.Every priest should check his fire protection measures and get appropriate prevention advice (and take it), with this possibility in mind,
