Archbishop Makarios launches October as the Greek Welfare Centre’s community awareness month


The Primate of Australia points out in a message that, as an arm of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of Australia, the Greek Welfare Centre undertakes a wide range of programs and services to help address the needs of the “least of these my brethrem”.

Archbishop Makarios warmly congratulates and commends “the Management of the Centre for their guiding focus, the tireless efforts of the Director Steve Magdas for his leadership, the Staff and the hundreds of volunteers who come together with the single aim of giving of themselves in a self-sacrificing and humble manner.”

“The events that unfold during the coming weeks, showcase the multi-faceted approach of the centre’s wide-ranging activities, which ultimately see Christ in all those they serve,” the Archbishop says.

Archbishop Makarios, finally, wishes the Greek Welfare Centre every success in the endeavours and pursuits during this month, and for the years ahead.
