Greek Cathedral celebrates Name Day
8 November 2020
It is the pride and the symbol of the Greek Orthodox Community and on Sunday the 8th of November, the jewel of Franklin Street, the Cathedral of Archangels Michael & Gabriel, celebrated its name day.
Having been the central point of the Greeks of Adelaide for the last 90 years, the Cathedral once again draw dozens of Hellenes who, under strict COVID-19 rules, participated in its name day celebrations.
Saturday night members of the Administrative Council and the broader community attended the Great Vesper and later enjoyed the traditional take-away honey puffs served by the ladies of the Women’s Fellowships at the church’s courtyard.
The two-day event continued on Sunday as again a number of people came to the Cathedral to attend the Great Divine Liturgy and be part of this significant religious event.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, only 120 were allowed inside the church, however, many more came through the door, lit a candle and went back outside.
The divine liturgy concluded with the traditional procession of the holy icon around the church.
The morning service was followed by take-away grilled delicacies prepared by members of the Administrative Council and the church’s volunteers’ team.
The ladies from the Women’s Fellowships however prepared the popular honey puffs ‘loukoumades’, again only as take-away.
