A dear friend of this congregation has been ordained as a transitional Deacon in Vienna, yesterday, by that most eminent prelate, the Cardinal Archbishop of Vienna, Count Christoph Schönborn OP. (photo) The new deacon, Dimitrii, has strong connections with many at St John's through our link with the Philokalia Society. Two members of our congregation are in Vienna to support him at this special time. From here our prayers and best of wishes as he starts his new ministerial life.

A delightful family in my congregation is passing through a rough patch this week, could you please add them to your prayers?

Finally the Manchester report is out. I have been reading it and feel the need to read it again and again. I will post about this shortly.
