The Relic of the Right Hand of St George in Britain

The Twelve Apostles Greek Orthodox Church in Hertfordshire[1] was blessed with the arrival for a few days (last weekend of October) of the relic of the right hand of St George. This relic arrived to Britain from the Xenofontos Monastery (Mount Athos). 

The relic was accompanied by the Abbot of the Monastery Fr Alexios, together with a number of monks, Moses, Zosimas and Jeremiah. The relics were received by His Eminence Gregorios, Archbishop of Thyateira and Great Britain. Many services took place in honour of this visit, in order for the faithful to receive the blessings of St George.
