Greek Orthodox church in Kogarah receives $40,000 grant to render outside facade


Kogarah’s Greek Orthodox church, ‘The Resurrection of our Lord, our Lady of Myrtles, St Elessa,’ will remediate and render its outside facade after receiving a $40,000 grant from the New South Wales government.

The funding was obtained as part of the government’s Community Building Partnership Grants for 2020. It was made possible with the help of NSW Labor Leader and Member for Kogarah, Chris Minns MP, as well as the Member for Kogarah, Steve Kamper MP.

Both Mr Minns and Mr Kamper attended the Kogarah church on Thursday to meet with His Grace Bishop Christodoulos, Father Athanasios Giatsios, Deacon Mario Baghos, and the President of the Kogarah Parish Committee Nicholas Varvaris, to discuss the Parish’s renovation plans.

Bishop Christodoulos told The Greek Herald the community was pleased to receive the grant and thanked the Ministers “for coming to the assistance of the Parish Committee in getting the funding.”

“The grant will ensure this wonderful Cathedral is kept in state-of-the-art condition for all to enjoy. This is great news for church attendees, Greek Australians and the entire St George Community,” Bishop Christodoulos said.
