Catholic parish hosts Greek Orthodox Easter after fire destroys church

More than 1300 Greek Orthodox parishioners participated in a unique Easter celebration at a Catholic church in Adelaide after fire destroyed their church at Glenelg North last week.

St Panteleimon Greek Orthodox Church was badly damaged by a fire on April 2, just days before the Greek Orthodox Easter.

Glenelg Catholic parish came to the rescue and offered Our Lady of Victories Church to the Greek Orthodox congregation.

Packed services were held from Thursday through to Sunday morning in the much larger Catholic church after being advertised on Greek radio and through social media. Click here to read more.
