Happy St Peter's Day 29 June

The Consulate Chapel has three fine stained glass windows all restored after the 2003 outrage.

One shows St Peter receiving the Keys from Christ

We pray for all who will not hear the Gospel of love on this - another day of evil murders in Istanbul.

90th Birthday at St Helena's Chapel

Many thanks to Rixos Hotel staff for new planting at St Helena's Chapel yard on The Queen's 90th birthday

Ecumenism in the faith

Lesley Lee and Gail Matheson regularly support deeper ecumenical spirituality. Leslie has sent the following notice to our broader community....

There will be a Taize service of prayer & song on Thursday 16 June 20:00 - 21:00 at Saint Peter & Paul, Galata.
This is an inter-faith, multi-lingual marvellously inclusive, spiritually uplifting hour spent praying for our World.

Usually we meet on the 2nd Tuesday of the month from September  - June, but this last meeting will be on Thursday because prayer will be focussed on the Orthodox Great Council meeting opening in Cyprus on that day. 

We  meet for a meal beforehand at the Nola Cafe at 18:30.

If you would like more details please email Lesley - lesley.lee54@gmail.com.
