Пасха 2019 в Петропавловском соборе в Стратфилде

В полночь на 28 апреля колокольный звон Петропавловского собора, возвестивший приход Святого Воскресения, разнесся над тихой улочкой Vernon сиднейского района Стратфилд. Сотни и сотни людей православной веры вместе с митрополитом Иларионом, епископом Георгием и священнослужителями, иконами и хоругвями, с зажженными свечами прошли Крестным ходом вокруг здания храма. «Христос Воскресе!» – провозгласил владыка, и ему вторили голоса священников и протодиаконов. Кажется, целое море огоньков окружает храм и подходит к главному входу, украшенному мозаичным панно Петра и Павла и светящимися на колокольне огромными буквами ХВ. (more…)
