New Greek Orthodox parish to be established in Northern Territory


A new Greek Orthodox parish named in honour of Saint Savvas the New of Kalymnos is set to be established in Darwin, the Northern Territory.

The first priest of the new parish will be Father Christos Tsoraklidis from Adelaide. He will serve the first Divine Liturgy on Saturday, March 25 this year at Mackillop Catholic College in Johnston.

The College will serve as a base for the parish and Divine Services until a permanent location is found for the new parish in the Palmerston area.

The new parish is an initiative of Archbishop Makarios of Australia and its establishment will be monitored by Bishop Silouan of Sinope, Archiepiscopal Vicar of Adelaide.
