The historical chuch "The Annunciation of Our Lady" of the Greek Community of Melbourne will soon be up and running. The church was severely damaged early May 2016 by fire.
The church doors will open from the 24th of March 2018 (the eve of the Feast-day of the Annunciation), but the project is still in progress. The reinstatement of the church will occur in gradual steps.
The festivities will commence on Saturday evening with the service for the Feast of the Holy Annunciation of Our Lady celebrated by His Grace Bishop Ezekiel of Dervis, assisted by a number of Orthodox priests and is expected to be attended by hundreds of local parishioners.
On Sunday 25 March the Feast Day will be celebrated with the Divine Liturgy officiated by His Grace Bishop Iakovos of Miletoupolis.
