Pascha in Sydney

On Pascha Bishop John again visited Sydney, serving at the parish of Sts Cosmas and Damian (GOC) at Dulwich Hill. The service was in Greek and English. He concelebrated with priest George Jan (GOC) and ordained subdeacon Elias to the diaconate during the Paschal midnight liturgy. Fr Deacon Elias will be assigned to serve both at St John of Kronstadt (ROCA) and Sts Cosmas and Damian parishes (GOC).

In the afternoon, Bishop John visited the home-chapel of St John of Kronstadt, where father Nebojsa had celebrated the full paschal service the night before. During his visit, a group of parishioners sang the paschal hours.
