The August 2023 meeting of the Parish Council
In the evening of Tuesday 1 August 2023, a meeting of the Parish Council was held. This was our first meeting since April 2023. The main item for discussion was our new iconostasis, recently arrived in Australia and presently awaiting customs clearance and quarantine. Reports were heard concerning the process of shipping the iconostasis from Europe, arrangements for its installation and blessing, and the overall cost of the project. The parish rector tabled a report on the life of the parish and aspects of Diocesan life for the period April-August 2023. The treasurer presented a detailed financial report. Consideration was then given to arrangements for services in honour of Saint Panteleimon on 8-9 August, fundraising, a service plan for 2024, and various other matters. The Parish Council will next meet early in September 2023.
