Visit to Holy Cross and Pantannassa Monasteries

Last week, FOCUS UNSW, SOPHIA Usyd and the Belmore Youth Committee were very privileged to have the blessing to visit Holy Cross Monastery for a Paraklesis Service. But the blessings didn’t end there! After having lunch together, we were also given the unexpected opportunity to visit Pantanassa Monastery. God’s guiding hand was definitely with us! Thank you to everyone who attended, especially Father Apostolos, and made the day so special. What greater blessing than for us to come together and experience the beauty of the Orthodox Faith!
