SECOND PANORTHODOX GATHERING HELD IN WELLINGTON
The feastday of St Euphemia the Great’s wonderous miracle of faith at the fourth Ecumenical Council in the year 451 was celebrated with much joy with a Pan-Orthodox Hierarchical Divine Liturgy at the Church of St Andrew’s in Wellington on Saturday 11 July. This was led by Metropolitan Myron with assistance from Fathers Meletios, Amphilochios and George from the Greek Church and Father Predrag from the Serbian Church. Many faithful Orthodox Christians of different ethnicities were in attendance – Greek, Serbian, Romanian, Russian, New Zealanders and others – but all brought together under the banner of Orthodoxy. Glory to God!
This day also marked the two year anniversary of Metropolitan Myron’s ordination to the episcopal rank and we wish him many years as shepherd of his flock!
The strength of the community is reflected in the readiness of the individual to help his prosperity and progress with his work and time invested.
Become a volunteer today and help your church with your skills in numerous projects in and around the temple.
Тhose who give to the Church give to God, and God does not remain indebted to anyone, but returns many times over!
