GOC-ROCA episcopal concelebration in Australia

Newset GOC-ROCA episcopal concelebration in our Australian and New Zealand Diocese - Russian Orthodox Church Abroad

 "Look down from heaven, O God, and behold, and visit this vineyard which Thy right hand hath planted, and establish it!"

And: AXIOS!  AXIOS!  AXIOS! to our new ROCA canonical and lawful Bishop of Melbourne and Australia, Vladyka JOHN!
May God help and strengthen and save him, and our faithful ROCA flock in Australia and New Zealand!

"O Lord! Save the God-fearing, and hear us!"

The parish celebrated its church feast day in honour of St King-Martyr Stefan Dechanski (transferred from 11/24 November to the Sunday), with the rite of Serbian Slava and a procession around the church.

After the service, the sisterhood of St Angelina served sumptuous meal in the parish hall.
