Further Information (Greek)


In honour of the Feast Day of the Three Hierarchs, Saints Basil the Great, Gregory the Theologian, and John Chrysostom, patrons of education, His Eminence Archbishop Makarios has given his blessing for St Andrew’s Theological College to collaborate with the Australian Hellenic Educators’ Association and to host a public lecture by Dr Vassilis Adrahtas (Western Sydney University), entitled:

Hellenism Transformed in the Light of Christ: The Three Hierarchs in World History Perspective



As it is well known, the teachings of these three Holy Fathers and ecumenical teachers not only shaped Orthodox theology but their inestimable contribution to education, more broadly, is acknowledged and renowned, and thus they are rightly acclaimed as patrons of education throughout the ages.

The lecture will be presented in English.

You are all cordially invited to attend this event. Please feel welcome to bring along other people who may be interested and to spread the news about it. See attached Flyer.

Time: Thursday 30 January 2020, 6:30pm
Venue: Main Hall of St Andrew’s Theological College, 242 Cleveland Street, Redfern.

Free Admission.
All welcome.
Refreshments will be served.

NO RSVP REQUIRED.


On-site parking is very limited. Please consider public transport or parking in nearby Pitt or George Sts (Redfern), or Chippen or Meagher Sts (Chippendale).


Encyclical from His Eminence Archbishop Makarios in Greek or English.
