Welcome to Fr Constantin


On the Sunday after The Nativity we had the great pleasure of welcoming as guest, Fr. Constantin Naclad. Fr. Constantin is a senior member of the Theological and Educational Department of the Romanian Patriarchate. He and his wife were visiting their son and family in York, who are members of our community. After the Divine Liturgy we had an interesting discussion on church matters in the Romanian and Antiochian Patriarchates. We look forward to welcoming them back to York again when they next visit their family.

At a time when the feast of Our Lord’s birth is often forgotten in the rush to waste money on costly gifts and over-eating please remember those of our neighbours who have so little – and give generously whatever you can, recalling His parable of the contribution of the Poor Widow (Mark 12:41-44)

So let each one give as he purposes in his heart, not grudgingly or of necessity; for God loves a cheerful giver. (2 Corinthians 9:7)

Your prayers, please.
Fr. Michael
