New Year’s Day at the Cathedral of the Dormition of the Theotokos Wood Green

On the 1st January 2024, commemorating both the Lord’s circumcision and St Basil the Great, Hia Grace Bishop Iakovos of Claudiopolis celebrated the Divine Liturgy. Following the eucharistic synaxis, His Grace Iakovos cut the traditional Vasilopita (cake in memory of St Basil) while sharing words of encouragement and paternal love on the occasion of the commencement of a new year. The V. Revd Archim Lazarus Georgiou, a visiting clergyman from the Metropolis of Limassol in Cyprus, preached the sermon, at the well attended Hierarchical liturgy of St Basil.
