Fundraiser at All Saints of Russia Church, Croydon

The Church of All Proclaimed Saints of Russia in Croydon, Sydney, chose the Sunday of the Prodigal Son, and the Feast of the Three Hierarchs to hold it’s annual ‘shashlik’ (kebab) fundraiser.

Perhaps the timing was not the best because it turned out that the event clashed with a few other orthodox luncheons and so Sydney’s Russian Orthodox Churchgoers were torn between various events.

People willingly supported the event with generous donations and the small parish was grateful for the financial assistance. (more…)
