Многая лета Петропавловскому собору в Сиднее

12 июля, в день святых апостолов Петра и Павла, главный русский православный храм Сиднея в 66-й раз отмечал свой престольный праздник.

Начали строить здание храма в Стратфилде вскоре после войны, когда в Сидней прибыла большая группа русских, приехавших из лагерей беженцев в Европе, а также из Харбина, Шанхая и других мест Китая. Уже в 1953 году в строящемся здании начались службы, в мае на купол колокольни был поднят и водружен крест, а 27 декабря архиепископ Феодор освятил новое здание собора.  Продолжайте читать здесь

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…)
