Northcote: The First Salutations Service at the Archdiocesan Church of Our Lady ‘Axion Esti’

On Friday evening, 22 March 2024, His Grace Bishop Evmenios of Kerasounta officiated at the Service of the Salutations to the Theotokos at the Archdiocesan Church of Our Lady ‘Axion Esti’ in Northcote, Victoria.

Bishop Evmenios chanted the hymns of the First Stanza of the Salutations in front of the holy icon of Our Lady “Axion Esti”, which is kept in the Church and is a copy of the venerable and miraculous icon “Axion Esti” which is housed in the Protaton Church of Mount Athos.

At the conclusion of the Salutations Service, Bishop Evmenios conveyed to the congregation the wishes of His Eminence Archbishop Makarios of Australia for the period of Holy and Great Lent, while he shared with the faithful some of his thoughts regarding the person of the Virgin Mary and the important role she plays in our daily lives.
