Melbourne: Talk given by Father Athanasios Iviritis

With the blessings of His Eminence Archbishop Makarios of Australia and with the guidance of His Grace Bishop Kyriakos of Sozopolis, the Archangels Parish in Parkdale hosted Father Athanasios Iviritis from the Iviron Monastery on Mount Athos to speak about His experiences as a priest monk on the Holy mountain.

Before Fr Athanasios spoke a short video about the monastery as well as Panagia Portaitissa was shown.

Following the conclusion of the talk, His Grace Bishop Kyriakos and Father Athanasios answered questions from the audience.

Fr Athanasios offered a deep insight into the importance of prayer which we should never overlook as part of our daily ascesis as Orthodox Christians.

The Church hall reached full capacity and guests were treated to light refreshments after.

His Grace on behalf of His Eminence Archbishop Makarios of Australia thanked Father Athanasios for his insightful talk and thanked the many attendees for their presence and interest.

His Grace also acknowledged and thanked Mr Nicholas Archontonis, Brother of our Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew for gracing the evening with his presence.
