Annual Outing to the Chapel of Saint Luke – Onrus
St Luke’s at Onrus River is one of the few small and private churches in South Africa. The little Eastern Orthodox styled chapel, near Hermanus in the Cape, is certainly one of the most interesting. This minuscule place of worship stands close to the sea and is the characteristic of the white Eastern Orthodox chapels with its barrel-vaulted roof.
On Saturday 2 November, the Very Reverend Father Nikolaos officiated at the Service of the Holy Eucharist at the Chapel of Saint Luke in Onrus in the presence of His Eminence Archbishop Sergios and His Grace Bishop Gennadios from Botswana. The president of the Hellenic community in Cape Town, Mr Nassos Martalas together with other committee members and parishioners from the Cathedral of of Saint George also travelled to Onrus to attend the service.
After the service, everyone enjoyed a lunch together, before travelling back to Cape Town.
