Devastating Fires @ St George Monastery Yellow Rock

IMPORTANT UPDATE ON THE STATE OF THE MONASTERY IN THE WAKE OF THE BUSHFIRES (updated 25.11.2013):

The fire which swept through Springwood, Winmalee and Yellow Rock on Thursday 17th Oct. 2013, caused significant damage to the monastery. The Archdiocese of Australia has issued an encyclical letter calling on the Greek Orthodox community to support the Holy Monastery of St. George by donating to the appeal. The encyclical can be accessed by clicking the link below:

Encyclical – St. George Appeal

Because of damages to the property sustained through the bushfire and the subsequent need for clean up, it is not yet deemed safe for visitors to the monastery. Currently the monastery is closed to all. We will update the faithful as soon as there are any changes to this status.

We ask for your continued prayers.
