Dear parishioners, this year the last week of May was marked for us by a double celebration, the Ascension of Our Lord Jesus Christ and our patronal feast, in honour of the memory of our holy patron Saint Colman of Oughaval. The temple is, unfortunately, not yet open to parishioners, but the Divine Liturgy will be celebrated on both of these Feasts. Holy Saint Colman, pray to God for us!
