Recent News and Events
It is a great joy to communicate with each and every one of you once again. We have been able to appreciate our Church Community in a very real way. Indeed, our Iconography continues in the Altar area. Also the introduction of leadlight windows and new Altar cloths into the Church has been a further blessing, and really, we thank our donors.
Our Services in the Orthodox Church are unique and help us to find real meaning in life. They transfigure us as we worship God. In particular, I would encourage people to attend Matins on Sunday morning at 8.00 - 9.30am now available in English on www.ematins.org. Also we have started an English Liturgy every 3rd Saturday of the Month at 5.30pm so all can understand every word in English.
The Church’s work with our young and old continues and we encourage people to leave their Internet address with us so we can communicate with them. To register your email please join the St Stylianos mailing list (click on image at above right). Also Greek Language and Sunday Schools, adult and teenage Youth Groups, Cubs, Scouts and Byzantine Music lessons continue. Also our Tuesday Seniors’ Group in the Hall and Paraklesis has been a wonderful forum for our elderly.
Finally, please note in your diary that our Annual Fundraiser for the feeding program in Kenya and other parts of Africa is on Sunday after the Liturgy on the 14th October, 2012 in the Church Hall. If you would like raffle tickets please contact us. For those on the mailing list annual raffle tickets are for sale to assist the Parish and 3 raffle books have been sent. Also on the cover sheet of the raffles you are able to make a further donation to the Church as well. We hope you can support your Parish once again. When you have filled out your tickets please return the butts together with any unpurchased tickets in the envelope provided.
A big thank you to our sponsors for our Annual Raffle and Dance. The Raffle will be drawn at our Annual Dance at Doltone House, Sylvania Waters, on the 25th of August 2012. You are welcome to start booking your seat or table for the Annual Dance. In fact, we would greatly appreciate your early bookings. We thank you for your support and may God bless you and your family.
