Welcome back! Wishing you a Happy New Year and all the best for the start of term.
We have a couple events planned to mark the start of term and the Feast of the Lord’s Baptism (according to the Old Calendar – Happy Feast to all those who have already celebrated it!).
The first is an informal dinner this Friday, January 19th, at 7.30pm. It will be a bring-and-share meal in the dining room of Saint Theosevia’s House, 2 Canterbury Road, OX2 6LU. For various reasons it would be helpful if you let us know of your intention to come (firstname.lastname@example.org), but there is no formal RSVP, so please come along whenever you can.
Next week, on Monday, January 22nd, Magdalen College has very kindly agreed to host us for a celebration of the Great Blessing of the Waters at 7.15pm. The service will be taking place in the Chapel there; please let your friends know about it, especially if they aren’t themselves Orthodox, as the service will also be for the Week of Christian Unity!
We also need to get a choir together to sing at this service, so if you think you can sing, please write to us ASAP at email@example.com.
You can find our whole plan of events for this term here: https://oxfordorthsoc.org/hilary-2018/. We’ll also shortly be sending around an e-mail via our mailing list with this and other information, including a schedule of services over the next two weeks. There’s also a possibility that we may plan one or two more events (a talk/and or film screening) towards the end of term, so please be on the lookout for further updates!
Your OrthSoc Committee
