Here are some photographs of my ordination to the subdiaconate. I am incredibly grateful to Elisabeth from the cathedral parish for taking these and giving me this record of a very special day. The delay in them arriving was due to her having to re-schedule her return flight from her holiday due to the volcanic ash. I'm glad she eventully made it back safely.

Preparing to wash Vladyka's hands. This is usually done at this point anyway but if a new subdeacon has been ordained he performs the washing.
