On Thursday, 7th June 2018, Fr. Taras Gorpynyak of our parish in Wayville, South Australia, was elevated to the level of Canon in our Eparchy in a ceremony at Pallotti College in Millgrove, Victoria.
- Fr. Taras honoured on Pentecost Sunday
- The first Holy Confession and solemn Holy Communion in Wayville
- His Beatitude Patriarch Sviatoslav in Adelaide
The clergy of the Eparchy sang Axios, Axios (He is worthy!) as Bishop Peter put a jewelled cross around his neck and an epigonation on his shoulder.
The prayer of installation explained the new roles and obligations of Fr. Taras. He, now as a senior priest, must set a good example, guide other clergy and teach the younger clergy of the Eparchy.
