Greeting from Fr Dimitri, pastor of St Nicholas


I greet you in the light and joy of the Resurrection. I say to you: welcome to the website of St Nicholas Church. You are welcome every time you honour us with your visit (Ahlan wa sahlan!).
Guided by our shepherd, the Most Reverend Metropolitan Basilios, we endeavour to renew ourselves continually. We seek the help of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ Who has given us life and abolished our death by His glorious Resurrection.
Dear friends, you are visiting the first Antiochian Orthodox Church in the state of Victoria. This year (2007), St Nicholas celebrates its Diamond Jubilee. The congregation is marking its seventy fifth year in East Melbourne. Thanks be to our Lord Who has given us well loved people to help us improve and update the pages of this medium which provides a connection between us and yourselves.
We thank them and pray that they may have every blessing from God. We endeavour to walk in His Light, to spread His Good News and to glorify His Holy Name now and at all times, Amen.
Fr Dimitri,
Parish Priest.
