Summer Fair

The Summer fair is almost upon us. 

We'd be grateful for your help to set up on Friday 22 July, after the 10.00am Mass

Donations of material for the tables and also of raffle prizes still gratefully received.

Columbarium Garden

Your help, please!

The columbarium garden has become extremely overgrown is now in urgent need of some TLC.

We'd be grateful for your help to clear it of weeds and overgrowth on Sunday 31 July after Mass.

The columbarium is the area (accessed via the gate on Acanthus Road) where the mortal remains of some of our deceased priests and parishioners are buried.

Any assistance gratefully received to help us return this part of the church to a more worthy state. Thank you.

Congratulations & Thanks

to Gloria Harper on her 80th birthday. We enjoyed some lovely hospitality after Mass last Sunday to celebrate. Many happy returns and every blessing!

Thank you

to those who contributed to the generous gift from the Parish to Fr Luke on the occasion of his Ordination and First Mass.

Thank you to all those who came to Croydon for those two important occasions.

Icon of St Nectarios

As part of Fr Luke's ordination gift, we commissioned an icon of St Nectarios, the Patron of the Greek Orthodox Community in Battersea.

It was written by Olivera Milosevic, a member of the congregation at St Nectarios, and co-ordinator of the Parish's Icon Workshop.

It was blessed by Fr Chris, the Parish Priest, on the (Orthodox) Feast of Pentecost.
