Historical sketch

The monastery of Ayios Theothoros on Kythera was built by craftsmen from Monemvasia at the place where a smaller one previously existed and where Saint Theodoros had lived like a hermit the 10th century. The Saint was born in Koroni and came to Kythera when the island was deserted. For this reason he is perceived by the Kytherians to be the one who brought life to the island. Ayios Theothoros died on the 12th of May 961 A.C. and his body was found intact three years later.


With the blessing of Agios Theodoros to all of you, XRONIA POLLA.

Holy Trinity, Greek Orthodox Church, Hobart, Tasmania

Holy Trinity Church is a grand, convict-built heritage-listed building in Hobart and dates from 1841 when the foundation stone was laid by Sir John Franklin (of North-West Passage fame). Standing proudly on a hilltop, Holy Trinity is Hobart's most prominent colonial structure and Christian landmark. For many historical, cultural and religious reasons it is one of the most important churches in Tasmania and Australia

Holy Trinity Church was designed as a place of Christian worship for the Church of England by convict architect James Blackburn, an Englishman who was transported to Van Diemen's Land (Tasmania) in 1833 for forgery. The church is in the Gothic Revival style with cathedral-like proportions along a north-south axis and is regarded as perhaps his greatest work. It is convict built on a fine hilltop (Potter's Hill) with excellent townscape values.

On Sunday 10th February, 2013, the Church of Saint Haralambos, 4 Fleet Close, Tuggerah 2259, Central Coast, New South Wales, Australia celbrated the feast day of Ayios Haralambos.

The Church is in the process of being built, so the service was conducted under a very large tent-like structure which the Saint Haralambos Church Committee had constructed.

A number of buses from various parishes in Sydney ensured that the attendence at the ceremony was well in excess of 500 people.

This very dynamic Committee has achieved wonders over the past few years.

It is projected that the Church of Saint Haralambos will be completed by the end of this year (2013).

Fleet Close is off Reliance Drive, in the Tuggerah Business Park.
