With the blessing of Archbishop Makarios of Australia, today the annual Combined Epiphany Celebrations took place.
The service was presided by the new Bishop-elect Elpidios, with all clergy from the Perth parishes in attendance.
Fr Eleftherios, from a boat not too far from shore, released the cross into the water. A group of approximately twelve swimmers then raced off through the water but only one was victorious. We’d like to congratulate Jack Bird for retrieving the cross this year!
A big thank you goes to all of our helpers and volunteers that made today possible, and to everyone who came down to show their support.
It was great to see so many people in spite of the of the heavy heat.
Thank you everyone!
