The Annual Sunday School Picnic for Sydney and Wollongong 2024

With the blessing of His Eminence Archbishop Makarios of Australia, the Annual Sunday School Picnic for 2024 was held at Gough Whitlam Park in Earlwood, on Monday 10th of June, 2024.

Over 350 children and their families from Sunday Schools across Sydney and Wollongong gathered together for a day filled with activities, games and enjoyment.

The day was further blessed by the presence of numerous members of the clergy of the Holy Archdiocese of Australia. Fr Irenaeus Triantis, Parish Priest of St Sophia & Three Daughters, along with Fr Dimitrios Kokkinos, Parish Priest of St Ioannis, addressed the children, emphasising the importance of Christ-centred environments such as Sunday School. They also conveyed the blessings of His Eminence Archbishop Makarios of Australia and provided a small icon for each child to take home.

Throughout the day, the children participated in numerous games and activities, culminating in running races and tightly contested tug-of-war. Ultimately, the alliance of the parishes of All Saints in Belmore, St Nicholas in Marrickville, the Cathedral Annunciation of Our Lady in Redfern and St Andrew’s in Gladesville, triumphed and took home the 2024 Sunday School picnic trophy.
