Divine Liturgy in Manila

Last night we served Great Vespers, and this morning the Divine Liturgy, at the parish of St Theophan, in the home church of Father Konstantine Lautillo in Manila. Ironically, we weren’t able to meet him because this week he is away at a clergy gathering in the USA.

With the blessing of Antiochian Metropolitan Paul and ROCOR Metropolitan Hilarion, Fr Seraphim served together with Father Andrew Lim and Deacon Rodion Rafols, while I sang the choir parts.

The Liturgy is fully translated into Tagalog, making it easy to sing the choir responses in that language.
