In 18 of august ukrainians from Newcastle  will be marking two notable local events in the life of the community and the Parish: the 64th Anniversary of the arrival of the first large group of Ukrainians who were brought directly to Newcastle from Europe to settle and make a life for themselves in Australia.

They arrived on the ship Fairsea on 19th August 1949 and were transferred to the Greta Migrant camp in the Hunter Valley. (Photo)

Also it is the 44th Anniversary of the completion and Blessing of this parish Church in honour of the Pokrova, as many people would remember, on the 3rd August of 1969.
