“We are pleased to inform you that with the blessing of His Eminence Archbishop Makarios of Australia, the Central Philoptochos Society is hosting a grand fundraising dinner for the newly acquired temple in the Bowden area of ​​Adelaide, which will become the cathedral of the Archdiocese District of Adelaide and later the center of church life for the Orthodox of South Australia.

The adjacent building will house the offices of the Archdiocesan District of Adelaide and will host events of ecclesiastical, national and social interest.

For this purpose, folk dances and songs and church hymns will be presented.

You are invited to this great fund-raising event, the proceeds of which will be donated for the beautification of the temple and its configuration in accordance with our Orthodox Church, and as a loving contribution to its reimbursement.
