More and more parishes of the Holy Archdiocese of Australia are systematically incorporating within their social ministries, feeding programs for isolated people and families in need of support.

These activities are constantly being expanded with the initiative and blessing of Archbishop Makarios of Australia in order to help, as much as possible, those who are in need.

The Cathedral Parish of the Annunciation of the Theotokos, in Redfern, Sydney, is implementing the “Merimna” program. Under the guidance of the parish priest, Very Reverend Archimandrite Christophoros Krikelis, and with the assistance of the members of the Ladies Philoptochos and other volunteers, about 100 meals are being distributed every Monday.

On Monday morning, May 17, Archbishop Makarios of Australia visited the kitchen, which is located on the premises of St Andrew’s Theological College, and had the opportunity to talk with the ladies of the Philoptochos, to express his sincere gratitude to them for their involvement and, through them, to thank all the volunteers of the programs that are being implemented by the parishes for their valuable contribution to the social ministry of the local Church.

An additional warm “thank you” was addressed to the members of the Ladies Philoptochos for the fact that, in addition, they take care of the needs of the students of the Theological College with great love by cooking for them once a week.
