Schedule of Services March - April 2020

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

For most of us, the circumstances we are facing with the threat of the Coronavirus are unlike anything we have ever experienced.

In light of the rapidly evolving Coronavirus situation in Australia, we tried our best to sustain normal services, while taking suitable precautionary measures to safeguard the health and safety of our parishioners.

Today, the Australian government announced that religious gatherings, places of worship or funerals must be restricted from opening from midday local time 23 March 2020

Effective from 23 March (Monday), St. George Russian Orthodox Church in Carlton will be temporarily closed until further notice.

“Fear not, little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom” (Luke

12:32).

It’s time to enhance our prayer at home, be calm and rely on God’s will. Let us remember that everything is from the hand of God, and “all things work together for good to them that love God” (Rom. 8:28).
