Iconostasis

We have been blessed with a new, magnificent Marble iconostasis which adorns the church. This has been built through the grace of God, and we would be humbled by your donations to assist us in paying for this beautiful structure. Please contact Fr. Constantine Varipatis on 0418 511 212, or send a cheque or money order to P.O.Box 170 Sylvania Sydney, N.S.W 2224 Australia.

Car Parking
Parishioners are requested to be mindful of neighbours, and respectful of nature strips when parking in and around the church grounds. Those vehicles that are illegally parked will be fined by the local council

Recent News and Events

Greek National Day - 25th of March 1821

As you can see in our photogallery all our Parish and Communities celebrated Greek National Day with Archbishop Stylianos, the Primate of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese in Australia, representatives from the Greek and Australian Governments, and of course 1000s of kids and people. We had the memorial Service at Martin Place and then we marched to the Domain through Sydney's streets. Our Parish had a great contingent with about 50 kids marching and also our senior dancing groups dancing in wonderful style. Finally, it is worth noting that an announcement was made by the Federal Government about funding that was made available to the tune of $1.9 mil for a Youth Retreat Centre at Bribie Island Queensland. Overall a great day.

Holy Week

The Holy Week program is now available here as an attachment. We hope that all parishioners will have great blessings during this time. Please note that we will have a Palm Sunday Luncheon in our hall underneath the church. Please book as soon as possible with Fr Constantine (Ph 0418511212) or one of the committee. Fr Constantine and our Committees pray you have a blessed Easter. God Bless you all.
