Holy Transfiguration Church, in Ontario, Canada, is now consecrated, after a joyous ceremony on Sunday. The Antiochian Orthodox Church opened this new facility in a building that was once home to a Protestant congregation.

From the article:
Quote
The bishop, accompanied by Holy Transfiguration priest Martin Meitz and former priest Polycarp Gilbert, circled the building three times before stopping at the front door to say “Lift up your gates” several times before he and the congregation entered and the sanctuary was blessed.
My only weakness is, well, never mind

He said he had a horrible house
I looked in it and learnt to shut my mouth

Come back my dream into my arms, into my arms

London is drowning, and I live by the river
