St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church Opens Its Doors for Evangelismos

Due to the devastating fire that severely damaged the Annunciation of our Lady (Evangelismos) Church on Monday 2 May, future liturgies will be held at St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church at 594 Victoria Parade (cnr Victoria Parade & Hoddle Street) in East Melbourne, commencing 7.30 am.

Every Wednesday at 10:00am a Supplicatory Canon (Paraklesis) service is held.

Every Saturday at 5:00pm a Vespers service is held.

Every first Thursday of each month an English liturgy is held at 7:00pm followed by a talk.

Other services are on the programme hand-out to be given during hours of operation.

The most extensive damage occurred in the west section of the church, where some irreplaceable icons dating back to 1800s were completely destroyed and rare lead-light windows were damaged beyond repair.

The Greek Community will continue to share information through its social media networks and will also create a fund to accept donations from those who wish to contribute towards the restoration of this iconic piece of Victorian history.
