From the sweet and melodious voices of the students of two Greek Orthodox Colleges in Sydney, as well as the Youth and Teachers of the Greek Orthodox Christian Society, Sydney, His Eminence Archbishop Makarios of Australia, heard the first Traditional Christmas Carols, for this year’s festive season.

Specifically, on Thursday morning, 1 December 2022, His Eminence, with the presence of The Chancellor, Archimandrite of the Ecumenical Throne, Very Rev. Father Christophoros Krikelis, welcomed at the central offices of the Holy Archdiocese, in the suburb of Redfern, the delegations of students from the Greek Orthodox Colleges of Saint Spyridon in Kingsford and All Saints in Belmore. The children, after singing the traditional carols, conveyed to His Eminence Archbishop Makarios the wishes of their classmates, as well as the administration and teaching staff of their schools.

In the afternoon of the same day, His Eminence Archbishop Makarios was visited by the youth of the Greek Orthodox Christian Society and the Sunday School teachers of the Holy Archdiocese, who, accompanied by musical instruments, sang traditional carols in the Great Hall of Saint Andrew’s Theological College.

After singing their festive psalmodies, everyone received the thanks of their Shepherd for their visit, as well as His paternal wishes for a Merry Christmas and a blessed New Year.

Also, His Eminence asked the students paternally, as well as the young men and women of the Christian Society, to keep Christ at the centre of their lives and to have Him as a companion in their joys and trials.

Finally, in commemoration of the day, His Eminence Archbishop Makarios of Australia offered to the children an anniversary series of stamps, issued by the Holy Archdiocese of Australia in collaboration with Australia Post, on the occasion of the celebration of 200 years since the beginning of the Greek Revolution of 1821, while traditional treats followed and were offered to all.
