Schedule of Service Fees

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

Parking Restrictions

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.

SPIRITUAL WAVES || Documentary about the Restoration of Jordanville

A financial crisis has hit Holy Trinity Monastery in Jordanville, NY, because of a series of structural, electrical, and plumbing issues. Metropolitan Hilarion led a special task force from the Eastern American Diocesan Council to Jordanville on December 14th. The purpose of the trip was to investigate the problem and offer assistance to the brotherhood. Our diocesan film crew traveled to Jordanville with the Metropolitan to produce this documentary.
