On the occasion of the first anniversary of the arrival of His Eminence Archbishop Makarios to Australia, staff and members of GWC express our heartfelt appreciation for his inspirational leadership, guidance and support over the past 12 months.
The arrival of His Eminence marks the commencement of a historic time for the Greek Orthodox Church in Australia. We remember the thousands of people gathered at Sydney airport to welcome His Eminence. The atmosphere of joy and celebration is imprinted in the memory of all those present. “AXIOS”
It was a blessing to witness the expressions of love, humility and respect in the words of His Eminence. These words and actions continue to embody the leadership and vision of His Eminence as he has engaged with, and continues to engage with, all sections of the Church and Australian society around Australia on a one on one basis.
This engagement is represented by a myriad of achievements that have been highlighted in a range of areas. These achievements are even more significant when we consider the impact of the coronavirus pandemic, and summer bushfires around Australia.
We thank you, Your Eminence, for your inspiration and guidance, and pray that God grant you strength to continue your ministry here is Australia.
