On Saturday 24 May and Sunday 25 May we had services for the sixth Sunday of Pascha, the Sunday of the Blind Man.  On this day we also commemorated the Translation of the Relics of Saint Nicholas from Myra in Lycia (Asia Minor) to Bari (Italy), the patronal feast of our parish.  On Saturday evening, all-night vigil with the blessing of five loaves and wheat, wine and oil was served.  On Sunday morning the parish rector served the Lesser Blessing of Water before concelebrating Divine Liturgy with Hieromonk John (Macpherson) of the Holy Trinity Monastery in Monkerai, NSW.   After Divine Liturgy there was a moleben to Saint Nicholas with a procession around the church.  A collection taken up at Metropolitan Hilarion's request to assist the Serbian people suffering as a result of recent devastating floods raised $375.00.  Many of those present, including friends from the Gosford parish, then gathered in the church hall for a festive meal.
