An article from the St George and Sutherland Shire Leader, Monday, 12 August 2013. 

MORE than 100 members of the Macedonian community gathered in Woronora Cemetery on Friday to bless the foundations of a new gateway chapel.

 

The official blessing was performed by His Eminence Metropolitan Petar, the Diocesan Bishop of the Macedonian Orthodox Church Diocese for Australia and New Zealand, and the event was given extra significance as it was held on Macedonia’s national day.

Sutherland Shire mayor Kent Johns said it was a great honour that the Macedonian community had chosen to locate the temple in the shire.
