With the blessing of His Eminence Archbishop of Australia, the Archdiocesan District of Adelaide will celebrate another major milestone with the inauguration of a new parish, with a mission specifically aimed at bringing English-speakers to the Faith.
The Parish will be fittingly dedicated to the recently-canonised St Sophrony of Essex – a modern western saint. By the providence of God, an opportunity has arisen to utilise a historic church in Adelaide’s northeast (14 North St, Hectorville), which will form the base for the new parish.
The inaugural Divine Liturgy will be a Hierarchical Divine Liturgy with Matins, and will be held on Sunday 15th of January 2023 from 8:00am to 10:30am, presided by the local Archepiscopal Vicar His Grace Bishop Silouan of Sinope, and assisted by Fr Daniel Bradshaw – current principal of St Spyridon College Unley and himself an English-speaking convert to Orthodoxy. The service will be followed by morning tea and coffee.
