Memorial service in Tasmania for victims of the 1974 Cypriot invasion

With the Blessings of His Eminence Archbishop Makarios of Australia,  His Grace Bishop Bartholomew of Charioupolis the Archiepiscopal Vicar of Canberra visited Tasmania and conducted a memorial service for our dearly beloved brethren who lost their lives in the invasion of Cyprus in 1974 at the church of Holy Trinity in Hobart.


Present at the service was Her Excellency Mrs Martha Mavrommatis, the High Commissioner of Cyprus in Australia.


His Grace welcomed Her Excellency on behalf of His Eminence and spoke about the importance of reflecting on the tragic events of 1974 as well as praying for the dearly departed. In addition His Grace mentioned that although there are not many Cypriots in Tasmania, we must hold Cyprus close to our hearts for we are all Greek and are united by our common Christian faith.


A luncheon was organised in honour of His Grace and the High Commissioner afterwards in the church hall.
