Message from, Dr Tas Fermanis MBBS, UNSW, President

Dear friends, supporters and parishioners of “Saint Haralambos” of Central Coast NSW. Congratulations. We laid the Foundation Stone of our Church bearing the name “Saint Haralambos" on November 12, 2011. Witnessed by over a thousand worshippers, the Foundation Stone was laid by His Eminence Archbishop Stylianos, Primate of the Orthodox Church in Australia, and Exarch of the Ecumenical Council, supported by His Grace Bishop Seraphim of Apollonias and helped by Clergy and Deacons, in front of Mr Chris Hartcher MP for Terrigal and Minister of Central Coast, Councillor Doug Eaton of Wyong Council and his wife, representing the Mayor of Wyong, Mr David Harris with his wife and family, ALP spokesperson for the seat of Wyong and representative of Mr Chris Spence MP for the seat of The Entrance.

After many years of fund raising and planning, organising and numerous meetings, the Dream has become a reality with the naming and the laying of the Foundation Stone on the framework that is to be the floor of the Church of “Saint Haralambos”.

Parishioners and worshipers packed the tent that the Service took place with hundreds on the outside areas and participated in the Liturgy which was carried out by His Grace Bishop Seraphim of Apollonias and assisted by a number of Priests.

Following the Liturgy, the Foundation Day Service took place with the Blessing of The Water (Agiasmos) and Laying of the Foundation Stone.

May I congratulate and thank the Members of the Committee of the Parish, their wives and many others who have helped and continue to help us in this Holy Goal.

I would like to especially thank my brother and friend, Mr Jim Dimis, Senior Vice President and Chairperson of the Committee, for his outstanding work, dedication and ability to complete all preparations for the day. What Jim Dimis has done is now well known and need not be said.

I am honoured and humbled by what has been accomplished in such a small period of time.

I would also like to thank the group of Ladies who worked tirelessly throughout the year on all the functions we had as in BBQs and other social fund raising events.

Finally, I would like to thank each and every one of you for your continuing support and generosity.
