Services to All Saints of Britain and Ireland this coming Sunday
the Third Sunday after Pentecost
28th June 2009
Just a reminder that in 2007 the Russian Orthodox Church established the Feast of All Saints of Great Britan and Ireland
to be held annually on the Third Sunday After Pentecost.
Read the Decree from Moscow herehttp://www.orthodoxchristianity.net/forum/index.php/topic,13801.msg192615.html#msg192615
I have four liturgical texts which may be useful for parishes with a blessing from their hierarch to observe this Feastday next Sunday.
1. All Saints of Britain Vigil (in English), composed in 1976 with the blessing of ROCA Archbishop Anthony of Geneva (and Great Britain)
2. The Canon (in Russian) from the Vigil
3. An alternative Canon (in English) composed by Archimandrite David of Walsingham (Moscow Patriarchate) and used in the UK Diocese with the blessing of Metropolitan Anthony Bloom
4. Another Vigil Service (in English) by, I think, Fr Andrew Philips of Felixstowe which appears to be based on the 1976 version.
