Saint Panteleimon Greek church in Adelaide re-opens as English-speaking parish

·

The Greek Orthodox church of Saint Panteleimon in Glenelg, Adelaide, South Australia has re-opened as an English-speaking parish.

The first all-English hierarchical Divine Liturgy was held on the Eve of the Nativity (Sunday, December 24, 2023), presided over by Bishop Silouan of Sinope.

The church aims to cater to the needs of parishioners in the Western suburbs of Adelaide who don’t speak as much Greek, to understand the church service better.

The re-opened church can now allow for 40 people to be seated.

The church, which is located in Glenelg North, was recently relocated to form the parish of the Holy Cross in Glenelg. 

The new premises allow for a much larger and more suitable space to cater to the growing numbers of attendees to the parish. The parish is also the only one which caters to the South-Western suburbs in Adelaide.
