Programme for November 2014

Recent Events:

We'd like to thank everyone for their involvement and contribution to our November Fundraising BBQ for Central Africa and Kenya feeding program, the Congo Theological college and those suffering from the Ebola virus in Sierra Leone.  In addition to raising awareness of the suffering and the need of personal and monetary aid in Sierra Leone, we also raised close to $14,000 on the day of the BBQ which brings the total for the year to just under $30,000. 

Thanks to all our committees and volunteers and to our sponsors who donated all the food, drinks, entertainment and auction items, which enables us to send all proceeds towards this great cause.

Upcoming Events:

It is that time of year again for the Blessed Feast Day of our Church of St Stylianos. This year Bishop Seraphim will serve at the Vespers (Tuesday evening), the Litania or procession of the Icon of St Stylianos will be on the actual Feast day (Wednesday 26 Nov) and on Sunday the 30th of November Archbishop Stylianos will be with us to celebrate our Church Feast Day with the Service and a luncheon. St Stylianos is a significant Saint for our children given they need so much more direction in an age where foundations have been shaken in a very worldly and secular manner.

God Bless you and your family.
Fr Constantine and the Parish of St Stylianos
