Another Chronic Wound in the Body of the Greek Community in Australia Has Been Healed

SYDNEY — The Holy Archdiocese of Australia is in the pleasant position to announce that from today, the Holy Parish of Saints Raphael, Nicholas and Irene in Liverpool, Sydney, is open for the faithful as the chronic issues that have divided the Parish-Community for the last eight years have been resolved.

After the intervention of His Eminence Archbishop Makarios of Australia and his efforts to bring about the reconciliation between the Administrative Committee and the Trustee Committee, the divisive climate within the Parish-Community is now a thing of the past. A new page has been turned with the scheduling of the prescribed procedures for the convening of the General Meeting and the election of a new Administrative Committee, following the apology and resignation of all the members of the outgoing, contravening Administrative Committee.

The beginning of this new journey, which is now being etched in a harmonious spirit of peace and unity by the Parish-Community of Liverpool, was the meeting of the members of the outgoing Administrative Committee with His Eminence Archbishop Makarios on Thursday afternoon, 6 May. The meeting took place in the central offices of the Holy Archdiocese, in Redfern, in an atmosphere of concern and cooperation. The declared intention of everyone for cooperation and unity is expected to be solemnly sealed next Sunday, 16 May, when His Eminence will go to the Holy Parish of Saints Raphael, Nicholas and Irene and will officiate in the presence of all the members of the Parish-Community.

Given this, another chronic wound that has beleaguered the body of the Greek community in Australia has been healed. His Eminence Archbishop Makarios continues to work diligently to achieve this sacred purpose in every wounded member in the body of the local Greek community.
