Following a jam-packed two week visit to Melbourne, there is little rest for His Eminence Archbishop Makarios before he ventures off yet again, this time to Adelaide to meet the Greek Orthodox community.
Arriving on Saturday 31 August, it will be the Archbishop’s first pastoral visit to South Australia since his enthronement in June.
A five day schedule has been put together for the Archbishop, during which he will attend a number of community and official events where he will meet with various members of the community, as well as key stakeholders.
The visit to Adelaide is part of a broader pastoral tour to major Australian cities to welcome the new Archbishop to Australia.
