An updated schedule of Church services covering the rest of the year is available in:
The Church is now open and bookings are no longer required for any service. The first 65 people will get a spot in Church and after that people will be directed into the hall to watch the live stream on the big screen. Masks must be worn inside the Church and hall. With 80% vaccination status, there is a further easing of restrictions.
On the Feastday of the Dormition of the Most Holy Theotokos (2021), Metropolitan Hilarion has released a Jubilee Epistle.
In these times of lock down, we offer a short video to provide hope.
A pastoral letter from Bishop George regarding the COVID vaccines is available in:
Because of the corona virus pandemic, ALL scripture lessons programmed for 2020 have been indefinitely postponed. Updates will be provided once the pandemic clears and the Church has been opened and allowed to serve at full capacity.
The Russian Orthodox Church in Cabramatta is a popular venue to conduct weddings, Christenings, Baptisms and funerals. Often people ask Fr Boris and/or the staff at the candle stands how much it costs to hire the Church.
A standardised schedule of services fees has been created in English to help people plan their day.
Bookings are made with the Priest and Fr Boris can be reached on 02 4625 7743
On Sunday 8 July an Information Session was held in the Church Hall to discuss a possible land deal with the Russian Relief Association (RRA) of St Sergius of Radonezh. All the relevant documents are available as:
Agenda that was released in the days before the meeting
Minutes of the Information Session
Annex A Proposed development for the RRA as displayed by Nick Ostin
Annex B Petition signed by the ILU residents as tabled by Alex Jones
Annex C Option D presentation from Nicholas Rotenko
The next step is that the Board of Directors of the RRA will discuss these Minutes and Annexes at the next board meeting. The Church Parish Council will then wait for a new offer(s) from the RRA. A meeting will then be called to discuss the new offers and to plan the way ahead. Updates will be published on this website.
There are new parking restrictions in place from now until Pokrov: there is no parking for anyone under any circumstances on the southern grassed area (between Church and toilet block). Even if there are no steel bollards and a steel fence to block your way, go park somewhere else. Let’s preserve the new grass and give the kids an area to play on rather than ruin it with car tyres and create another dust bowl. Reminder that there is no parking on the asphalt during business hours. We still have 2000m2 of available parking at the block of land that fronts onto 291 Cabramatta Road.
Information regarding a possible sale of land / swap of land can be viewed in this Information Circular.
A Russian version is also now available.
This document is designed to inform Parish members of what has happened to date, inform them of the options available, get them talking about the matter and get them to come to the Information Session.
As a follow up to the Information Circular, there will be an Information Session on Sunday 8 July in the Church hall.
We are currently seeing many new applications for Parish membership and a membership form is now available.
