A Hierarchical Vespers Service took place at the Holy Monastery of St John in Perth for the feast day of St Paisios the Athonite as reported by vema.com.au.
The service was presided by Bishop Elpidios of Kyanea and took place in the recently built byzantine style Chapel of St. Paisios.
During the sermon, the Bishop reminded everyone that St Paisios was a man of humility and patience, especially during his time of hardships.
The Bishop also mentioned the spiritual connection that St. Paisios had with St. Euphemia, the Great Martyr.
It’s worth noting that one of the first cities that Archbishop Makarios visited when first arriving in Australia was Perth for the Feast Day of St Paisios.
It was during this time, approximately two years ago, when the very first liturgy took place in the new Chapel of St. Paisios.
