As the Acting Minister for Multiculturalism, I extend my best wishes to the Greek Orthodox community in New South Wales and wish you a happy and peaceful Christmas.

After a challenging year, the central Christmas message of the birth of Jesus Christ offers us hope and comfort. I hope you get the chance to share this special time of year with your loved ones in a COVID-safe way.

I would like to thank His Eminence Archbishop Makarios and the Greek Orthodox community, especially the clergy, for your collaboration and support throughout 2020. Your efforts and sacrifices have assisted the NSW Government enormously. Thank you for playing your part to help save lives. 

I wish everyone a happy, healthy and safe Christmas and a wonderful New Year.
