Greek Orthodox church in Kogarah receives $20,000 grant to upgrade entrance doors


Kogarah’s Greek Orthodox church, ‘The Resurrection of our Lord, our Lady of Myrtles, St Elessa,’ is set to upgrade its entrance doors after receiving a $20,000 grant from the New South Wales Government.

The exciting news comes after Member for Oatley, Mark Coure MP, successfully wrote to NSW Premier, Gladys Berejiklian, on behalf of the Kogarah parish and local Greek community.

“Thanks to a NSW Government investment from our Premier, Gladys Berejiklian, the Greek Orthodox Parish and Community of Kogarah has received $20,000 to upgrade the entrance doors to the venue,” Mr Coure wrote on a Facebook post.

Kogarah’s Greek Orthodox church is set to upgrade its front doors.

“This compliments the fantastic facilities at the church and it will further enhance the state of the art precinct as a whole. This is great news for church attendees, Greek Australians and the entire St George community.”

In response, the Kogarah Parish Committee and parish priest, Father Kyriakos, say they are “pleased to have received the grant… towards the much needed replacement of our church front doors.”

“We would like to thank Mark Coure MP for coming to the assistance of the Parish Committee in procuring the funding,” reads a Facebook post.
