Nativity of our Lord – Resurrection Church, Auckland – photoreport

This year for the Great Feast of the Nativity of Christ we prayed in the Samoan Christian Centre, which we hope to purchase soon as our parish centre and new church.

On the eve, Matins was served for families with young children.  The Vigil began at 10 pm and ended with a Midnight Liturgy (there were 80 communicants), the first-ever Midnight service held for Nativity in New Zealand.  Later that morning, a second Liturgy was celebrated (95 communicants, mostly children) with the Сhildren’s Yolka and gifts following.
