·

Ahead of Greek Easter, Federal Opposition leader Anthony Albanese, has shared his message with the Greek Australian community.

In his Easter message, Albanese said: “After what has been a particularly hard year for the Greek Community, I hope that we can all safely share in the joy of Easter.”

Full message below:

On behalf of the Australian Labor Party, it gives me great pleasure to wish the Australian Greek community a happy and Holy Orthodox Easter.

After a year of so much grief and heartache, Easter brings us hope as we reflect on the powerful example of Jesus Christ and how, as He triumphed over death, He gave us love’s greatest victory.

We hold on to that sense of hope as Greece fights the third wave of COVID-19. We all keep Hellas in our prayers.

I would like to pay tribute to the ongoing contribution of the Greek Orthodox Church and community. After what has been a particularly hard year for the Greek Community, I hope that we can all safely share in the joy of Easter.

May your celebration be a joyous one in the company of your family and loved ones. 

Καλό Πάσχα! Καλή Ανάσταση! Χριστός Aνέστη!
