Dear Parishioners,
Hope you are all well.

On behalf of all the Parish Committees would like to say to all a blessed Christmas and New Year 2020. Attached is the Parish program for December and January. Please note the early start for Christmas. Also for the Blessings of homes the program is attached. If for some reason I have missed your home in the past or you are new to the parish please leave your details at the parish on Sundays.

Please also note the "Things to remember for 2010”. Here you can see some new initiatives for Adult Greek Lessons and a Teenage Youth Group. The later has a toy drive for the children’s hospital happening if you wish to help. Of course we have the usual programs in 2020 for Greek language, Greek Dancing, Adult Fellowship, Play group, Sunday School, and Byzantine music lessons. Also finally, please note if you know of an elderly person in the Parish who has no transport there may be a bus available only on Tuesday morning to pick up for Seniors Group starting in February. For details for all the above feel free to ring me on 0418 511212.

May God bless you all.
Fr Constantine

Theological College
We are privileged in Sydney to have the Theological College here in Sydney. We wish to encourage young people to study Theology to become Priests and Teachers. We have a real mission here not to be caught up in materialism, Technology and Syncretism in today’s society. Dedication to God and to service to our fellow human beings breaks these barriers.
