On Thursday evening we were treated to a presentation by the members of the congregation who had attended the Ordination of Father Aho in south eastern Turkey at the end of April. The evening included an opportunity to see some pictures of the event, listen to some of the chanting in Aramaic from the service, and to hear the experiences of the travellers. We were honoured to have Bishop John, the retired Bishop of Chichester with us, it was Bishop John who had made the initial contact with the Syrian Orthodox Church in southern Turkey, and has been instrumental in arranging for Aho and others to visit and study in Chichester. There was an interesting and lively discussion after the presentation, and it was agreed by all that the experience of visiting the Ordination had been a most moving and inspiring one.
We then tucked into a wonderful spread of Turkish food provided by those who had been to Turkey.
Many thanks to all who helped to clear up and in particular to Chris Field for organising and helping us.
