O holy father Athanasios, like a pillar of orthodoxy you refuted the heretical nonsense of Arius by insisting that the Father and the Son are equal in essence. O venerable father, beg Christ our God to save our souls.

Saturday Liturgy at Rookwood

Every Saturday morning, Father John Grillis serves Matins and the Divine Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom. After the Divine Liturgy, a memorial service is performed for the memorials that are scheduled for that day. Saturday is traditionally the correct day for performing memorial services and since our Church is situated in a cemetery, it is a weekly tradition that has been adhered to since the Church was opened. To schedule a memorial service, please phone Father John on 0418277034.
