As is customary, the Vespers for the Day of the Holy Spirit together with the Kneeling Prayers were served immediately following the Divine Liturgy. We also offered prayers for our teachers and students at the end of the academic year.
On Sunday, June 12th, the following prayer was offered for the annual blessing of the pool: O Lord, how marvelous are Thy works. In wisdom hast Thou made them all. Send down Thy heavenly blessing upon this pool. Protect all who swim in it. Keep them safe as they enjoy the recreation and fellowship which it provides. For Thou art the Provider of every good gift, Who dost fill our hearts with joy and gladness, always, now and ever, and unto the ages of ages. Amen.

On Thomas Sunday, May 8th, an egg hunt was held for the children of the parish. As we know, the egg is widely used as a symbol of the start of new life, just as new life emerges from an egg when the chick hatches out. However, there were of course no chicks in these eggs, just chocolate and candy - much to the delight of the children and the dread of their parents!
