Fundraising for Presentation Sisterhood

The Presentation Sisterhood is a small monastic community in the far south of NSW on the banks of the Snowy River. The Cabramatta Parish has supported this community since it was founded in 1999 and continues to do so via annual fundraising initiatives. A lot of buildings have already been constructed and this year we are fundraising specifically for the new Church building at the monastery.

On Sunday 30 July 2023 there will be a fundraising dinner in the Cabramatta Church hall.

A poster can be found here.

The event will begin with a talk by Father Nicholas Karipoff entitled “Modern Temptations in Church Life” and followed by the debut choral performance by the The Sydney Russian Orthodox Women’s Choir directed by Andrei Laptev. These beginning items will be lived streamed on the Cabramatta Church YouTube site. Noting that it is a fundraiser initiative, donations are sought from people who will be watching the live stream.

A dinner will then be served inside the Church hall where guests will be able to participate in further fundraising activities. Cost is $60 per head ($50 for pensioners and $40 for children) for concert and dinner. Seating is at tables of 8. Childminding (creche) will be set up in the Russian school and is available for $15 per child. There are also concert only tickets for $20. Please be seated inside the Church at 4.45pm
