This week, the third of the Great Lent, Perth’s Serbian community had the great pleasure of hosting the visit of His Grace Bishop Iriney, along with Archimandrite Lazar, Deacon Branko Bosancic and Serbian priests from Adelaide.

The Holy Liturgy services were conducted in all three Serbian Churches in Perth by the above mentioned special guests, together with Perth’s Stavrophor Fr. Milorad Soaktar, PhD (Church of Holy Trinity), Fr. Zoran Ivanic (St Basil of Ostrog Mission) and Fr. Sasa Stojanovic (Church of St Sava).

Following the liturgy, those present – including members of all three parishes, jointly made a donation to a project which aims to improve the working and living conditions of handicapped children and youth in Krusevac, Serbia. This fundraising appeal will be continued until June.
