Each year the Anglican Church holds a National Pilgrimage to Glastonbury, one of the most ancient sites of British Christianity, and associated in legend with a visit of our Lord with St Joseph of Arimathea. (This does not have to be accepted as dogma of course).

The Anglican Church invites an Orthodox community to celebrate a liturgy at this ancient Christian site, and this year the Oriental Orthodox have been given an opportunity to witness to our faith and celebrate the liturgy.

H.E. Metropolitan Seraphim will be celebrating, and some British Orthodox clergy and people will make the drive over to Glastonbury. But it would be good to have clergy and laity from other Oriental Orthodox Churches come so that it is a witness to our shared faith. Many Anglicans are presently unsure of the future of their Church, and it seems to me that we should present a witness to our welcoming and traditional Orthodox Faith whenever we can.

SERVICE IN GLASTONBURY ABBEY

Saturday, 19 June 2010
The Annual Glastonbury Pilgrimage
St. Mary’s Chapel in the Undercroft

9.00 a.m.    Raising of Morning Incense
9.30 a.m.    Divine Liturgy & homily by Abba Seraphim, Metropolitan of Glastonbury

I am going to drive down. And I hope that I might see some other folk there from online forums and other places and Churches. It would be sad if the Anglicans give us such a prominent opportunity to witness to our faith and not many people take it up. If the weather stays as it is then it will be a pleasant time in any case. The Liturgy is celebrated in the ruins of the ancient Abbey which is said to go back to the time of Christ.

God bless

I'm bringing this topic up again to remind people who live in the UK about the liturgy tomorrow.  It looks like it will be a wonderful event.  I'm hoping videos will be taken and posted here.   Smiley

Did Abba Seraphim give this sermon at the liturgy at Glastonbury?

It's an excellent sermon on pilgrimage.
