Liturgy of St. Gregory celebrated in NW London

Yesterday night, 23rd January 2013 the Divine Liturgy of St. Gregory was celebrated at the Greek Orthodox Church of St. Panteleimon and St. Paraskevi in Harrow, NW London. It was celebrated by a number of priests, a deacon, accompanied by a number of chanters, bringing therefore back to life a rarely celebrated Liturgy. 

This Liturgy was part of the celebrations for the nameday of St. Gregory and the current Archbishop of Thyateira and Great Britain, Gregorios. Nevertheless, it is an annual event, celebrated by the same priests (who know the Liturgy), but in different locations. Last year it was celebrated at All Saints Greek Orthodox Cathedral, this year in Harrow and hopefully next year it will be celebrated at St. Sophia Greek Orthodox Cathedral in Bayswater, central London.

Our hope is that one day this special and unique Liturgy will be published in order for everyone to follow the Divine Liturgy of St. Gregory.
