On Saturday 8 and Sunday 9 October we had services for the Sixteenth Sunday after Pentecost and in honour of the Holy Apostle and Evangelist John the Theologian. Presiding at Divine Liturgy on Sunday morning was Bishop George of Canberra, visiting our parish for the first time since August 2014. Joining us on the occasion of Bishop George’s visit were Deacon Martin Naef, Subdeacon Nicholas Martinov, and Jordanville seminarian Reader Michael Martinov. At the end of Divine Liturgy Bishop George gave an edifying sermon about the life of the Holy Apostle John. Following the dismissal, parish awards and flowers were presented to three women for their contribution to parish life: Olga Rusak, Eugenia Kallaur, and Natalia Rahim. The clergy and faithful afterwards gathered in the church hall for a festive meal. Over lunch, Father James welcomed Bishop George to the parish, noting that it was his first visit as Diocesan Administrator. On behalf of the parish he thanked Vladyka for his attention and wished him all the best in his archpastoral labours in the Australian-New Zealand Diocese.
