NSW Premier, Gladys Berejiklian, sends hopeful Easter message to Greek community


NSW Premier, Gladys Berejiklian, has sent her well wishes to the state’s Greek community ahead of Orthodox Easter on Sunday.

In her message, Ms Berejiklian thanked Orthodox leaders and the community for their “compassion and collaboration in the face of recent challenges facing our community.”

Full Message in English:

I offer my best wishes for a happy Easter to Orthodox communities across NSW.

Easter is the holiest time of year for Christians around the world. It is an opportunity to reflect on the resurrection of Jesus Christ and the universal values of family, sacrifice and renewal. This message has particular resonance this year when we have worked so hard together to stop the spread of COVID-19.

I would like to thank Orthodox leaders and the wider Orthodox community for your compassion and collaboration in the face of recent challenges facing our community, including the COVID-19 pandemic. Your support for others reflects your continued commitment to our multicultural society.

As you gather with your families and friends at this time, I wish you all peace and good health for the coming year.

I wish everyone a happy Easter.
