Sunday,July 22nd: The New Martyr Ilie Lacatusu

Today at the Eyre Chapel, we celebrated the feast of the New Martyr, Priest Ilie Lacatusu, Wonderworker.  We sang his Akathist before the Liturgy, and a Panikhida for him afterwards, then feasted on kolyva and tira misu!  It was a joy to share all this with our Romanian parishioners and friends.  If you want to know about the life and canonisation of this Romanian saint, the internet provides his story and images.

Please see the Pictures section of this blog for images of our service/feast.

Long-suffering Father Ilie, putting on Christ’s mantle, pray to Him that He may save our souls.
