President of the Greek Orthodox Community Canberra, John Loukadellis, and Father Petros of St Nicholas Church in Canberra engaged in their first official meeting with His Eminence Archbishop Makarios.

The leaders met at the Archdiocese office in Redfern, Sydney on Monday to discuss the positive growth of the Greek community in Canberra and ensure its commitment to unity.

During the meeting, John and Fr. Petros discussed the committee’s vision for the future development of the community. They revealed their plan for future youth involvement with the church, along with the recent changes undertaken with their Greek School.

“His Eminence is such a treasure – such a well spoken, loving and thoughtful man that cares about our community. As we continue to go from strength to strength, we must remember the message of the Archbishop to us, ‘Unity, Love and Strength,'” John Loukadellis said in a post on Facebook.

During the meeting, the Archbishop also confirmed that his first official visit to the St Nicholas Church in Canberra will be during the Easter Holy Week, on Holy Tuesday.
