Deacons Justin Arnott and Peter Day were ordained to the priesthood on the Feast of St Matthew, Saturday 21 September 2019, at St Paul’s Cathedral, Nicosia. Fr Justin serves at the cathedral while Fr Peter has recently taken on particular responsibility for St Mark Famagusta in the wider parish of Ammochostos.
On the previous evening Peter, on piano, joined Worcester’s Trevor Tipple MBE, on organ, in a fundraising recital that ranged from fugues to rags, in aid of Christ Church Aden and the Ras Morbat eye clinic. The concert was prefaced by a talk from Bishop Michael about the Yemen, Aden, and the history of Christian and Anglican presence there. The evening raised around 700 euros.
