EARLIEST PARISHONERS

Our earliest parishioners Leon and Irina Soroka. Leon was the Churchwarden many years ago. Irina still bakes the prosphora for our monthly Liturgy. Last year (2017) they celebrated their 60th Wedding anniversary.

Early Parishoners of the Orthodox Church in Swindon: Leon and Irina Soroka
 

I believe that the Church is holy, not simply blessed and sanctified by gifts of grace, but holy with a depth and intensity which surpass all measure, holy with the holiness of God who resides there, in the way in which a piece of wood glows with the fire that consumes it.

Metropolitan Anthony of Sourozh
