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.

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