Canonical visit of Bishop Siluan to South Australia

In the previous year, restrictive measures, introduced due to the COVID-19 virus, made it impossible to travel from one federal state of Australia to another. Those measures were finally suspended, so the canonical visit of Bishop Siluan was finally made possible, which made all Orthodox Serbs living in South Australia very happy.

On Saturday, February 27, 2021, when the Church celebrates the Venerable Auxentius and St. Cyril the Slav, the Bishop visited the convent of the Nativity of the Most Holy Mother of God in Inglewood, where he served the Holy Hierarchal Liturgy.
