Pew Sheet – 12th May 2024

Welcome to Adam, Alex and Paddy who have come to be confirmed today.

A photo below is from St. Mark’s Syriac Orthodox Church in the Old City of Jerusalem, taken on 3rd May

by the Revd Canon Don Binder who is Canon Pastor to the English-Speaking Congregation in St George’s

Cathedral, Jerusalem.   He is also Chaplain to the Anglican Archbishop in Jerusalem.


The complex in St Mark’s contains a vaulted chamber whose location holds a strong claim of being the

Upper Room of the Last Supper. That’s thanks to the recovery of an ancient Aramaic inscription mentioning the site as the home of St. Mark’s mother, a place where the disciples often gathered (see Acts 12:12).

The photo shows a newly installed mosaic in the Upper Room, depicting the descending dove of the Holy

Spirit. Traditionally, the Upper Room was also the place where the Holy Spirit came down upon the 120 at Pentecost, which we will celebrate next Sunday 19th
