The Day of the Holy Trinity
The 12th of June was the Day of the Holy Trinity (Pentecost). At the parish of St Sergius of Radonezh in Johannesburg, the rector Daniel Lugovoy celebrated the Divine Liturgy and the Great Vespers with kneeling prayers.
After the divine service, parishioners organized a culinary competition. Twenty eight people brought their best dishes, representing Russian, Ukrainian and local cuisine. The parishioners enjoyed tasting all the dishes of the participants, and by doing such were able to revive their energies after the long worship services, communicate with each other, share the joy of the feast of the Holy Trinity and to celebrate the day of Russia. After counting the votes, the winners were awarded prizes and gifts.
