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

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).
