australian byzantine choir performance

fundraising concert

Just a quick announcement as to what our nearby church parish of St Nicholas Marrickville has planned for Sunday 17th October!
The Australian Byzantine Choir will be performing on Sunday afternoon at 4pm, as part of a fundraising concert. 
Where is the money going to? All proceeds will be donated to St George Monastery, Yellow Rock. 
What does it cost? It's entry by donation. 
So if you are not at the retreat, come and listen to the ancient mystical sounds of the byzantine music tradition.

panagia iamatiki chapel renovations

Everyone who took part of the feast of the birth of the Theotokos (September 8th) in our chapel celebrating this day, would of seen with their own eyes the changes that have already been made. As you will see in the picture below, the glass doors that use to occupy the entrance of the chapel and the glass separating it from the main body of the church, have now been removed.
Last week before the feasts, fundraising had totalled $16000 from $45000 needed to complete the project.
