Dear Parishioners,

November embodies many feast days for us to receive many blessings. Please try and attend these Services. In particular, we have the feast day of our St Stylianos Church. Please book for the luncheon on the 2nd of December to celebrate with us. May we have the continual intercession of the Mother of God and all the Saints.

Please note the Fellowship continues on Wednesday evening at 730 pm. On Wednesday the 7th of November at 7:30pm we will have a Paraklesis in English. Also there will be an English Liturgy on Tuesday 20th October at 4pm.

Also please note the Central Youth of the Holy Archdiocese is running an Adult retreat from 23-25 November. Please register ASAP: www.cycnsw.org.au/youth-retreat-2018. This will allow Christians from all Parishes to remain connected and be revitalised.

God bless you all,

Car Parking

Announcement from St Andrews Theological College regarding the vocation of priesthood. 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.

To find out about subscribing to the college's journal (Phronema) and also the latest upcoming events, particularly in terms of attending guest lectures, courses and symposia, please visit the St Andrews Theological College website.
