Feast of the Apostles Peter and Paul in Melbourne


The Annunciation monastic community has moved to Melbourne.

The first Divine Liturgy in the new location took place on the feast of St John of Shanghai and San Fransisco. Due to the current restrictions, only the residents of the community were able to be present at the Vigil and Liturgy for the Apostles Peter and Paul on 28-29.6./11-12.7. Nevertheless, the Liturgy marking the end of the Apostles’ fast was joyous and prayerful.

Glory to God for all things!
