St Nectarios Parish and Community in Burwood raised $3,880 during a private film screening of Man of God for those impacted by the recent floods in New South Wales.

Fifty percent of the funds raised at Event Cinemas in Burwood, attended by 230 people, will be donated to the Australian Red Cross, while the other half will go to the Food Bank, according to an announcement published by the Parish on Facebook.

“We were delighted to welcome 230 people last night to our private screening of Man of God at Event Cinemas Burwood about the life of our Patron, Saint Nectarios,” the organisers wrote.

“We are excited to announce a second screening on Sunday May 29 at 4pm in aid of the same cause. There are only 130 tickets available so book early,” the post announced a second screening, and the proceeds will also be directed towards Red Cross and Food Bank.
