There is one more issue of Journey to Pascha, intended for the Sunday of Great and Holy Pascha itself. The above, very brief, booklets are intended as a companion for Lent; some of the information may be useful beyond the Great Fast. If you have any questions regarding the booklets, please contact either Fr Edwin or Dn Jonathan.

The booklets are primarily produced for, and by, the Parish of St Cuthbert but can be distributed more widely if there is a desire for it. If you intend to use any of the material in the booklets, please cite “Orthodox Parish of St Cuthbert” as the author. We hope that you find these booklets useful.

A blessed Holy Week, Pascha and beyond!
