Heaven On Earth

The Orthodox Church is Truth. The Orthodox Church contains no human innovation, but the Word of God. In her there is no place for opinions, only the active and divine inspiration of God. All that we see of her, visible and invisible, hear and touch, her fragrance and her taste, is filled with the Spirit of God. She is a treasure beyond all human understanding. She is all beautiful and all Holy. She is our freedom and our love. In her lies all Truth. Without her Truth, her love and her freedom, nothing has any meaning.
She is not of this World. She is heaven on earth.

THE CHURCH IS BORN

She was taken from the side of Christ. The soldier pierced His side from which His Blood and Water flowed. "That Water and Blood symbolised Baptism and the Holy Eucharist. From these two Sacraments the Church is born: from Baptism, the cleansing water that gives rebirth and renewal through the Holy Spirit, and from the Holy Eucharist. Since the symbols of Baptism and the Eucharist flowed from His side, it was from His side that Christ fashioned the Church, as He had fashioned Eve from the side of Adam." (Daily readings from the writings of St John Chrysostomos pp. 17, 1988)

The Church sustains us, nourishes us, cleanses us, heals us, and restores us. She unites us to God.
"Nothing is more abiding than the Church; she is your salvation; she is your refuge. She is more lofty than the heavens; she is more far-reaching than the earth. She never grows old; she always stays in bloom. And so Scripture indicates her permanence and stability by calling her a virgin; her magnificence by calling her a queen; her closeness to God by calling her a daughter; her names try to spell out her barrenness turned to fecundity by calling her ‘the mother of seven’. A thousand names try to spell out her nobility. Just as the Lord is called by many names: Treasure, Lord, God, Son, Only-Begotten, Form of God, Image of God…. Since one name could not hope to describe the Omnipotent, and many names give us some small insight into His nature, so the Church goes by many names." (Daily readings of St John Chrysostomos pp. 117)

APOSTOLIC SUCCESSION
THE UNBROKEN GOLDEN CHAIN

Her beauty, her splendour and Her Holiness is never ending. Her tradition is unbroken. She is the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church. She has retained the faith because she is the True Faith. She has preserved the faith in its fullness because of the Holy Spirit. Her unbroken apostolic succession is an unbroken golden chain.

Fr Themi Adamopoulo Visits Perth

We would just like to thank Father Themi Adamopoulo, a missionary worker in Sierra Leone (Africa), for blessing us with his visit on Sunday, May 20.

Father Themi had visited us previously, back in 2017, at which time a local team was set up to help support him and his missionary work, though the Paradise4Kids charity.

This time round, spending the Saturday at St Nektarios, the Sunday with us, and the evening and following day at Sts Constantine and Helene, we managed to raise about $16,000 for his charity.
This money will go towards caring for the poor, as well as supporting the construction projects being overseen by Fr Themi.

If you didn't get a chance to show your support, you may do so either through our Church, or by heading over to the Paradise4Kids website. They have different donation options available (both Tax Deductible and Non Tax Deductible).

On average, more than 90% of all funds collected for Approved Grants are sent to Africa to be dispersed by Rev Themi. PK4A & P4K pay no salaries, have no staff, operate no offices, own no property, with all work and workers being voluntary.
