News From The Anglican Church Of Paphos

On a warm Saturday evening, 1st of October, we held our annual ‘Songs of Praise in the Park’ event. Members from our three churches, as well as people from other denominations and ‘locals’, met together in Ayio Andronikas Park in Polis to sing well-known hymns and listen to poems and readings on the theme of Faith. During the service, a collection was made for the Dreamland Mission Hospital in Kenya, a charity close to the hearts of the congregation of St Luke’s. We look forward to welcoming you and many others to next years’ service. )

Closely following on from the ‘Songs’ event, was our service of “Blessing of Pets“ to mark St Francis Of Assisi Day. Held annually on 4th October the service is run jointly between the Latin Catholics and the Anglican Church in the tree area outside Ayia Kyriaki Church (by St. Paul’s Pillar) Kato Paphos.  25 people and 2 children attended with their dogs. All the dogs got along very well with each other, it is almost as if they realise the special nature of their outing . It is a short service of prayers and a Bible reading and then each pet is Blessed by one of the Priests.  We would welcome any type of pet to the service so put the date in your diary for next year and come along.
