On Monday, May 22nd, 2023, the Parish of the Presentation of Our Lady to the Temple, in North Balwyn Victoria, hosted a Thank You dinner to honor all the volunteers for their tireless dedication, love, and support for the Parish.
Bishop Kyriakos of Sozopolis attended the event and personally thanked each volunteer and Fr. Nikolaos Georgiou, the Parish Priest, for their ongoing efforts in supporting the Parish and our Holy Archdiocese and Archdiocesan District of Melbourne.
Bishop Kyriakos also conveyed the paternal blessing of Archbishop Makarios of Australia and ensured that everyone’s efforts are noticed and greatly appreciated by Archbishop Makarios.
Bishop Kyriakos also gifted to the Parish an icon of Panagia of Yellow Rock and encouraged everyone to always turn to the Holy Theotokos to ask her for her intercessions in their lives and for our city of Melbourne and our Holy Archdiocese.
