WELL DONE YOU GOOD AND FAITHFUL SERVANT

Posted on 21 July 2014
On the 20th July Stephen received news that his old friend, Mael the archbishop of Dol in Brittany, had died.

Mael was 91 and had served the Celtic Orthodox Church for many years. He had proved to be a wise advisor to and supporter of Stephen’s ministry and Stephen had cherished the annual opportunities to take a week’s retreat at the Monastery of the Holy Presence in St. Dolay for over ten years. Most recently, Stephen has regularly lectured at St. Dolay on Bible background subjects.

Mael will be deeply missed by the Orthodox community in France and, especially, among all those for whom he was the Petit Pere.
