The Greek Orthodox Diocese of Australia

Four new Assistant Bishops have recently been elected at the Holy Synod of the Ecumenical Patriarchate on 30 August for the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of Australia.

The new appointments concern:

  • Bishop-elect Kyriakos of Sozopolis

The NCCA extends our heartfelt congratulations and prayers to The Very Reverend Archimandrite Prochoros Anastasiadis, pictured, who was elected with the title of Bishop of Charioupolis. Fr Proshoros currently serves in Canberra. He is Member Nominee of the Greek Orthodox Church in Australia for NCCA and represents His Eminence Archbishop Makarios at National Church Leaders’ meetings, that are facilitated by NCCA

May God grant him many years, along with all the necessary gifts and grace to fulfil his role.  May he be blessed and be a blessing.

His ordination service is scheduled for Sunday, 21st November. 2021 and will be performed by His Eminence Archbishop Makarios of Australia with other bishops who will be present and con-celebrating with him.
