The Pet Blessing Service: Monday 5th of October, twenty dogs and thirty-four owners and friends gathered for the annual service, combined with the Roman Catholics, to bless our pets. It was wonderful to have Archbishop Michael and Julia attending and for Archbishop Michael to be involved in the service.
It is always a simple service of blessing but somehow being outdoors, in the grounds of Ayia Kyriaki, adds greatly to it all. Thank you to Father Jim for his enthusiasm in making sure that this service happens and for all who came to support us.

At last we finally have our new Associate Priest!
The Reverend Ken Waters was Licensed by Archbishop Michael on Sunday 4th October.
Archbishop Michael, plus Bishop George, the Metropolitan of the Bishopric of Paphos whose beautiful cathedral we were kindly allowed to use for the service, plus Archdeacon Christopher, visiting clergy and representatives from other Parishes on the Island, Archbishop Michael’s PA, Georgia Katsantonis and Ken’s wife Wendy together with over 80 parishioners from all three of our churches here in Paphos, attended the service.
After the service, amidst congratulations we moved to refreshments – the first time in months that we had gathered as parishioners to socialize, legally together.

The Major Fundraising Team wish to thank everyone who supported the Barn Dance on Saturday (6th June 2019).
This was an absolutely fun night was held at Yiannis's Taverna in Kathikas, kicking off with a very generous meze buffet provided by Yiannis and his staff followed by a large number of people trying to lose the calories they had just gained. A big thank you to Janine for providing the music and trying to teach us to dance, Peter for taking photographs and to those who donated raffle prizes. A very successful, hugely enjoyable evening and feedback is for it to be repeated next year. The church benefitted from the event by raising €470.
