Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of Australia
Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of Australia

The Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of Australia, headquartered in Sydney, is an eparchy of the Church of Constantinople. Its current primate is His Eminence Stylianos (Harkianakis), Archbishop of Australia and Exarch of Oceania.

This is by far the largest orthodox jurisdiction in Australia with 116 parishes and 8 monasteries.

The Archdiocese has numerous successful organisations under its wings.  Each of these organisations and schools have been built by donations of the faithful and by contributions by the Australian government.

Educational Institutions

In 1982, the Archdiocese began the St Andrew's Greek Orthodox Theological College in Sydney as a part of the School of Divinity of the University of Sydney. Archbishop Stylianos currently serves as the dean of St. Andrew's, while Bishop Seraphim serves as sub-dean.  As the lone Orthodox Theological College in Australasia, it often accepts students of other jurisdictions.

The Archdiocese boasts seven bilingual colleges around Australia, including primary and secondary education, offered to both children of the Church and Australians alike. Each school has between 650-1000 students who enjoy education in all disciplines, including Greek language, culture and the Orthodox Christian faith.

Byzantine Chanting

Byzantine chanting is a key part of liturgical services in the Archdiocese.  Two performance choirs have been formed: the Byzantine Ecclesiastical Choir "Saint John of Damascus" in Adelaide under Elias Frangoulis, the Archon Protopsaltis of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of Australia; and the Australian Byzantine Choir in Sydney, now under George Combis, which in addition to performing, first provided a place for Sydney's chanters to be taught, and then provided two of the three teachers for the Archdiocesan School of Byzantine Music, established in 2005 under the auspices of Saint Andrew's Greek Orthodox Theological College.  Both choirs, and the school, teach and perform Byzantine chanting in Greek.

Publishing Institutions

St Andrew's Orthodox Press, established to publish the TO VEMA newspaper [1], Phronema and The Voice of Orthodoxy, has recently begun publishing books.  Publications range from liturgical books (e.g. the Archdiocese's official translation of the Divine Liturgy) to translations and publications by faculty of the Theological College.

Philanthropic Institutions

St. Basil's Homes (Australia), operate around Australia in each capital city since 1969 caring for all needs of the aged in their numorous facilities as well as delivering care into the homes of the Greeks under a variety of community care programs. St. Basil's cares for about 1200 aged Greeks in Australia. In 2006 St. Basil's commissioned a new $34 million state of the art facility in Miranda to the south of Sydney.

Logo of the Estia Foundation of Australia The Estia Foundation of Australia offers respite to those caring for children and adults with disabilities, and currently cares for over 100 young people.  A related organisation, the Provicare Foundation, has its main focus on drug and alcohol prevention, with telephone councelling and client visits.
