An event for the opening of an exhibition of traditional costumes, jewelry, furniture, embroidery, and carpets was organized by the Archdiocese of Australia and the Hellenic Lyceum of Sydney.
As reported by pontosnews.gr, this is an exhibition of the entire collection of the Hellenic Lyceum of Sydney with more than 40 costumes from almost all regions of Greece.
The big surprise of the event was the presence of the wife of the Federal Prime Minister, Jenny Morrison, to whom Archbishop Makarios of Australia gifted a copy of the Gospel. Jenny Morrison accepted the gift, and reciprocated the honor, saying “thank you” in Greek.
“The Greek Revolution and Greek freedom is not an event that concerns only the Greeks”, but an event that concerns “world history and world culture”, stressed Archbishop Makarios of Australia.
