On 19 May 2022, His Grace Bishop George of Canberra directed that a collection be taken up on Sunday 29 May to assist the Saints Cyril and Methodius Orthodox Institute (SCMOI). SCMOI is the theological and higher education institute of the Australian-New Zealand Diocese of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside Russia. A letter from Bishop George containing information about the work and needs of SCMOI is available in English here and in Russian here. As we will not have a service on Sunday 29 May, the collection will be taken up in our parish on Sunday 12 June, the Great Feast of Pentecost. Those wishing to make a direct donation or a commitment to ongoing support are encouraged to contact SCMOI.
