WE ARE EXCITED TO ANNOUNCE THE LAUNCHING OF A NEW WEB PAGE WITH TRANSLATIONS OF SOME OF OUR SERVICES IN ENGLISH

WE ARE EXCITED TO ANNOUNCE THE LAUNCHING OF A NEW WEB PAGE WITH TRANSLATIONS OF SOME OF OUR SERVICES IN ENGLISH

IN ELECTRONIC FORMAT (eBOOK)

It’s with great joy that we announce the creation of a new web page which will be linked in with the main website of our Archdiocese.

This new web page contains English translations of some of our services that the Committee for the Translation of Liturgical Texts (CTLT) has been hard at work translating since the early 90s with the blessing of His Eminence Archbishop Stylianos.

To date, the Committee has translated the Divine Liturgy, the Baptism, Marriage and Funeral Services together with a personal book of Prayers.

We are very excited about this initiative as it will give our faithful access to the richness of these services.

All our Church’s teaching (theology) is contained in our hymns; in reading these in English and therefore having greater understanding when praying these in the context of worship, it is our fervent hope that all of us will be given greater insights as we journey together to encounter the risen Lord.

The Archdiocese extends a heartfelt thanks to all members of the Committee, those past and present, but especially to its past chairman, Dr John Lee and to the current chair, Mr George Harris.

Official launch of the Orthodox Australia and Oceania website

Our Assembly of Canonical Orthodox Bishops of Oceania includes all jurisdictions in the region – Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of Australia, Greek Orthodox Metropolis of New Zealand and Exarchate of Oceania, Antiochian Orthodox Christian Archdiocese of Australia, New Zealand and the Philippines, Russian Orthodox Diocese of Australia and New Zealand, Serbian Orthodox Metropolitanate of Australia and New Zealand, Ukrainian Orthodox Consistory in Australia and New Zealand, Bulgarian Eastern Orthodox Diocese of USA, Canada and Australia, and Romanian Orthodox Episcopate of Australia and New Zealand. As you may be aware, the last Synaxis of the Assembly mandated the initiation of work on a website representing the Assembly.

Consequently, we are delighted to inform you about the launching of the official Orthodox Australia and Oceania website.

Visit Now: http://www.orthodox.net.au

This is the official website of our Assembly, and is intended to facilitate Pan-Orthodox communication. In Australia alone, there are currently 244 Orthodox churches, 20 monasteries and approximately 563,000 declared Eastern Orthodox Christians (according to the Australian Census of 2011).

We are aiming to provide:
• Maps and lists of all Orthodox parishes and monasteries in Australia, New Zealand and Fiji
• Electronic copies of official documents of the Assembly
• News and photos from Church events
• Information about upcoming events – parish feast days, seminars, planned pilgrimages, Bible Study groups etc.

In connection with the website, we have also established a Facebook group called "Orthodox Christians of Australia", which already has over 1000 members, including a large contingent of Orthodox clergy.

If possible, we would highly appreciate your support for our initiative, which aims to bring Orthodox communities closer together. You can help us in the following ways:
• Inform parishioners about the website by distributing our link www.orthodox.net.au;
• Provide a link to www.orthodox.net.au on your parish website;
• Display the downloadable flyer and cards on your parish notice board;
• Review and update your parish listing;
• Submit information about events, pilgrimages, Bible Study groups to Facebook group or by email orthodoxau@gmail.com ;
• Assist in translation to your language, and,
• Report any inaccuracies/grammatical issues/omissions or technical problems relating to the website to our webmaster on orthodoxau@gmail.com.

On behalf of the Assembly of Canonical Bishops, we thank you for your help and invoke God's rich and benevolent blessings upon you.


'SHARE WITH AFRICA' - AMAZING GENEROSITY OF OUR PEOPLE

'SHARE WITH AFRICA' - AMAZING GENEROSITY OF OUR PEOPLE

It was a great pleasure to witness the participation of our community in this evening's function at St Spyridon Parish Hall organized by the Missions Committee of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of Australia.

Under the banner 'Share with Africa', some 450 very generous faithful came from all the Parishes in Sydney to support the fund-raising effort which, this year, will assist the Orthodox missions in Kenya, the Republic of Congo and Sierra Leone.

Very stirring videos of the missionary work being conducted in these countries raised not only the level of awareness about the grass-roots struggle of these people but also the level of generosity of our folk.

Special mention must be made of the efforts by Mr Peter Souleles and Mr Kyriacos Mavroleftheros together with their team of volunteers, including Father Steven Scoutas who was the MC for this amazing fund-raiser, along with the many other volunteers, donors and sponsors.

Congratulations to the Missions Committee of the Archdiocese and much admiration for those who made tonight's function a resounding success.

40TH ANNIVERSARY OF HIS EMINENCE ARCHBISHOP STYLIANOS

40TH ANNIVERSARY OF HIS EMINENCE ARCHBISHOP STYLIANOS

AS HEAD OF THE GREEK ORTHODOX CHURCH IN AUSTRALIA

The 40th anniversary since the Holy Synod of the Ecumenical Patriarchate elected and enthroned His Eminence as Archbishop of the Greek Orthodox Church in this continent was celebrated on May 15, 2015. Over 800 faithful from every State across Australia attended the Official Dinner in Sydney. The event was honoured with the presence of the official representative of His All Holiness Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew. This was Metropolitan Ambrosios of Korea, who also read the official Message of our ecumenical Patriarch for the occasion.

Present were the leaders and representatives of every major Orthodox jurisdiction in Australia, together with many other dignitaries. During the evening, a video was presented showing highlights of Archbishop Stylianos’ 40 years of dedicated service in Australia. A packaged copy of the DVD was given freely as a gift.The eloquent speakers were Metropolitan Ambrosios of Korea, the Greek Ambassador to Australia Haris Dafaranos, Federal MP Anthony Albanese and the former Minister in the New South Wales government, George Souris. In response, His Eminence expressed praise and gratitude towards the faithful people of God who stood together with him throughout all those years.

The Millennium Choir of our Archdiocese, led by maestro George Ellis, also sang beautifully to honour the Archbishop and to provide an uplifting atmosphere that was appropriate to the joyful milestone that was being celebrated. There were two very capable MCs for the evening, so as to convey everything equally in Greek and English: the Very Rev. Father Steven Scoutas and Nicholas Pappas, Secretary of the Archdiocesan Council.

When the event closed at 10:30pm, it was apparent that the Dinner seemed to conclude all too soon, leading to much mingling and conversation of those who had come to honour our long-serving Archbishop and Father in Christ.

NSW: 25th March Greek Independence Day (2015)

NSW: 25th March Greek Independence Day (2015)

The Greek Independence Day celebration started at Martin Place on Sunday 22 March at 1:30pm with a Memorial Service and laying of wreaths at the Cenotaph. This was followed by a spectacular and joyous procession by the thousands including schools and other community organisations led by Police escort, the Greek RSL Sub Branch and Greek Australian Scouts of Sydney from Martin Place to the Opera House. In celebration of Greek Independence Day, many students of Orthodox Day Colleges and afternoon Greek language schools came superbly dressed in traditional Greek costumes holding banners and Greek flags.

This celebration encompasses both a historical and spiritual holiday. March 25 represents the anniversary of Greece’s struggle for Independence in 1821 after some 400 years of Ottoman occupation. The official date commemorating the Revolution was chosen for its religious significance, as it coincides with the Feast of the Annunciation to the Theotokos, when the Archangel Gabriel appeared to the Virgin Mary and told her that she would bear the Son of God.

The program included:
1.30pm Memorial Service and laying of wreaths at the Cenotaph, Martin Place.

2.00pm Procession of schools and other community organisations led by Police escort, the Greek RSL Sub Branch and Greek Australian Scouts of Sydney from Martin Place to the Opera House.

2.50pm Formal program in the Sydney Opera House Forecourt featuring:

• Performance of national anthems and traditional songs by the Combined Choir of the three bilingual Greek Orthodox Day Colleges of St Spyridon (Kingsford), St Euphemia (Bankstown) and All Saints (Belmore).
• Performance of traditional Greek dances.
• Brief addresses by dignitaries.

Dignitaries that were present:
• His Eminence Archbishop Stylianos, Primate of the Greek Orthodox Church in Australia;
• Representatives of the Australian Federal Government and Opposition;
• Representatives of the New South Wales Government and Opposition;
• Greek & Cypriot Diplomatic Officials;
• Other federal, state and local government representatives.

The Doctoral Thesis of Archbishop Stylianos of Australia

The Doctoral Thesis of Archbishop Stylianos of Australia

Republished 50 Years After It Was Written

50 years ago, in 1965, Archbishop Stylianos submitted his doctoral thesis to the University of Athens on the topic of The Infallibility of the Church in Orthodox Theology, which was recognized for its excellence. In this thesis, His Eminence clearly shows that the ‘infallibility’ of the Church is to be identified with its very essence, which is correct faith.The Orthodox Church is genuine and true, because it retains its essence - namely its faith - integrally and without watering it down.

He underlines, however, that his thesis does not exhaust the topic, but rather that it aims to be a springboard for “more complete research on the infallibility of the Church” in Orthodox theology. The fact that this study has now been republished in the original Greek in which it was written (by Apostoliki Diakonia, Athens) will certainly assist a new generation to approach the profound theological thought of Archbishop Stylianos, a great theologian of our times.

Copies will shortly be available for purchase at our Greek Orthodox Archdiocese Book Centre.

NSW: St Nicholas Parish Marrickville Seminar (SRE)

NSW: St Nicholas Parish Marrickville Seminar (SRE)

MAJOR FEAST DAYS OF THE ORTHODOX CHURCH

Monday March 8, 2015

A training program for the special religious education volunteers of the Greek Orthodox Archdioceses was organised at St Nicholas, Marrickville.

Over 60 volunteer Scripture teachers were welcomed by the parish priests, Fr Nicholas Bozikis and Fr Christodoulos Economou. In attendance also were Fr Constantine Varipatis the representative of the Archdiocese on the Inter-Church Commission for Religious Education in Schools, Fr Prochoros Anastasiadis from St Raphael at Liverpool and from Canberra, Fr Seraphim of the Russian Orthodox Church.

The program was organised to provide training for the publication "Major Feast Days of the Orthodox Church". This complements the special religious education curriculum with additional information for primary school classes.

Fr Christodoulos spoke on the importance of teaching the major feast days and Mr Andreas Boucas indicated the use of icons in teaching. Associate Professor Angelo Karantonis showed teachers how to use hymns to teach feast days. Ideas for teaching were outlined Mrs Kandia Tagalakis the Scripture Coordinator at St Euphemia and Mrs Evangelia Vasili, Coordinator at St Nicholas, provided detailed directions on how to use the booklets.

Copies of the major feast day booklets and workbooks are available directly from St Nicholas parish.

A spokesperson for the Archdiocese thanked the parish and its co-workers for this initiative and especially the hardworking philoptochos for their hospitality. The spokesperson pointed out that in many homes there is inadequate knowledge of the elements of the Orthodox faith and especially its great feasts. Many of those who grew up with these traditions have passed on and a new generation weclomes this information. The aim of Special Religious Education is to offer a community service freely to Orthodox children in State schools.It reaches out to over 5000 children each week.

NSW: Pan-Orthodox Vespers on the Sunday of Orthodoxy

NSW: Pan-Orthodox Vespers on the Sunday of Orthodoxy

The Pan-Orthodox Vespers on the Sunday of Orthodoxy was held at the Church of St Nicholas in Marrickville, Sydney on 1 March 2015. Various Orthodox Churches in Sydney came together to pray and to jointly declare their Orthodox Faith with a Procession of icons around the Church.

His Eminence Archbishop Stylianos officiated the Vespers service together with His Grace Bishop Irinej of the Serbian Orthodox Church, His Grace Bishop Mihail of the Romanian Orthodox Church and His Grace Bishop Seraphim of Apollonias. They were joined by many Clergy of the other Orthodox jurisdictions, with the participation of all our Sydney Clergy and many faithful.

Towards the end of Vespers, a Procession of the Icons took place, after which an excerpt from the Synodikon of the Seventh Ecumenical Council was read. It was also a great honour to have the Miracle-working Kursk Root Icon of the Theotokos present for the faithful to venerate. This joyous occasion ended with a communal meal expressing the friendship and solidarity of the Inter-Orthodox faithful.
