Just a reminder for all those with a love of the Irish and British Saints that in 2007 the Church of Russia designated the 3rd Sunday after Pentecost as the
Sunday of All Saints of Great Britain and Ireland
3 July 2011

Aug 21 2007 4:50PM
Russian church to annually honor early British Isles saints
MOSCOW. Aug 21 (Interfax) - The Holy Synod of the Russian Orthodox
Church instituted a holiday to honor Christians who lived on the
islands of Great Britain and Ireland and were canonized before the
1054 schism that divided Christendom into the Western Catholic and
Eastern Orthodox churches.
The holiday will be an annual event observed on the third Sunday
after Pentecost in the Julian Calendar.
The Synod, which met on Tuesday, also ordered that these saints'
names be included in the Menology after their Christian exploits have
been studied.
The Synod's decision follows an appeal of March 3, 2007, in which the
diocese of Sourozh, a Russian Orthodox Church diocese having the
islands of Great Britain and Ireland for its territory, asked the
head of the Russian Orthodox Church, Patriarch Alexy II, and its Holy
Synod to institute a holiday for pre-1054 British and Irish saints.

Pentecost....................................    12 June 2011
All Saints....................................     19 June
All Saints of Russia......................      26 June
All Saints of of Britain and Ireland.......   3 July

Irish Hermit, you'll be pleased to know that one newly-established Orthodox mission will be doing exactly that.  Smiley

Wonderful. Wish we celebrated it in the U.S. as well.   Smiley   angel

He will come again with glory to judge the living and the dead. His kingdom will have no end.

Sunday of All Saints of Great Britain and Ireland - 3 July 2011

"When the Church in the British Isles begins to venerate her own saints,
the Church will prosper"
~ Saint Arsenios of Cappadocia

Vigil Service to All Saints of the Isles

This is the English Service chanted in Great Britian and Ireland with the
blessing of His Eminence Archbishop Mark of Germany and Great Britain


I have placed four other liturgical texts in the Files of the ROCOR clergy
list list which may be useful for any 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 Archbishop Anthony of Geneva

2.  The Canon (in Russian) from the above 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.

I can pull these texts out of the files of the clergy list if anybody wants
