The Christmas holidays are always a great opportunity for the clergymen to visit elderly church members, to come to those who are unable to come to the church. Christ Himself comes to their homes in the Sacrament of Holy Communion. The Lord shows His love and care through the humble gifts that adorn the celebration. We’d like to extend our cordial thanks to our Diaconal Department, Anna Pomogayet Charity Cluster, and our dear deaconess Irina Makkonen of the church in Koltushi who untiringly cares for the needy. Blessings and joy to everybody in this wonderful time!
Bishop Ivan Laptev
