"You are the best thing that has happened to the Church" said Bishop IRINEJ of the Serbian Orthodox Metropolitanate of Australia and New Zealand to the youth in attendance at the 2013 Annual General Meeting of the Serbian Orthodox Youth Association (SOYA).
SOYA, which has been in existence since May of 2008, meets annually in a different state of Australia to discuss the strategic direction of the organisation and define their goals as representatives of the Serbian Orthodox Youth of Australia and New Zealand.
The Metropolitanate Day celebration of the Serbian Orthodox Church for Australia and New Zealand was held in the beautiful historic building of Perth Town Hall.
The celebration was held in a very pleasant atmosphere that was immediately established by a charming young Ana Davogic, MC. The guests have enjoyed the program that exceeded all expectations and everything that the Serbian community had opportunity to offer to local public in the past.
