Soon we begin Great Lent and before we enter this holy period would like to ask forgiveness for all of my shortcomings. May we have a beneficial Lent and fasting period. May God bless the spirit of Greece here in Australia at this time of 200 years after the Greek Revolution began. Let us celebrate our FREEDOM!
God bless Fr Constantine and the St Stylianos Committees

Fundraiser, on-line Silent Auction and Icon Raffle
for St Stylianos Community Hub, Childcare Centre and Church at Gymea NSW Australia.
The building of our Development application (DA) approved Community Hub and Child Care Centre echoes the life of Saint Stylianos the wonderworker that was blessed with power to cure ailing children and he helped couples conceive through his prayers. His was probably the first day-care centre in the world, where mothers of Paphlagonia (Asia Minor) around the 6th Century could safely leave their children.
With the blessing of His Eminence our Archbishop Makarios we ask that you could kindly show your generosity to the Parish of Saint Stylianos by supporting our fundraiser by bidding on the online auction, buying exclusive and limited raffles for Icons and attending our Annual Fundraiser with your family and friends at Doltone House Sylvania Waters on the 6thMarch 2021 which will have a variety of entertainment. You can make a booking for this event by clicking here .
The on-line silent auction will be conducted between Thursday 18/2/21 to Wednesday 3/3/21. This will give people an opportunity to show their support and generosity towards this worthwhile cause by not only donating funds but receiving some beautiful gifts. Go Direct to Fundraiser Silent Auction
You can also buy tickets in our exclusive Icon Raffle. These unique Icons will be on display at our Church till the morning of the 6/3/21. Go Direct to the online raffle which is also live.

Iviron monastery is one of the biggest monasteries on Mt Athos. It is an amazing monastic community and building that is set in a beautiful area of the world: the Garden of the Mother of God! It’s been made by a professional photographer who spends a lot of time at the monastery. It is very inspirational and a blessing that we have such monastics praying for us . Enjoy!
VOLUNTEER SCRIPTURE TEACHERS NEEDED
We would like to kindly ask you to help our team of volunteer teachers to help young kids learn more about the Bible and the Orthodox Church in Public Schools.
Please look at becoming a Scripture teacher. It is not something difficult but it is a great blessing for all. In particular is would be good to be part of the “be there for me” campaign as some of our teachers are elderly and need support at this time. Please feel free to watch this video prepared by the body that coordinates Scripture in Public Schools for which we are members.
May God bless you and your family.
