Dear ESC members, I am in the very pleasant position to announce you that God has inclined his ear to our prayers!! Today I have just received a call from the Holy Archbishopric that fr. Pablo Lopes has just arrived from the US (originally from Argentina) and that he will be sharing with me all the activities of our English Speaking Community. Fr. Pablo was sent by his Beatitude Archbishop of America Elpidoforos to Cyprus to learn the Greek language for one year. After the completion of the course he will have to return to the States. So thankfully he will be serving on a daily basis our English liturgies. Consequently on Christmas Eve he will serve his first English liturgy at our church at 10.45pm. It ll be like a kind of a small vigil which will finish around 12.20am. I have just met fr. Pablo today, and he had the chance to be present at my catechism class that was held this evening. (check photo) I feel that we will all be blessed by his presence and diaconia because he is a very good willing man with great zeal. Let us all welcome him warmly and thank God for His great gift!!
