A BRIEF OUTLINE OF THE SYRIAN ORTHODOX CHURCH’S PRESENT SITUATION IN AUSTRALIA

Although the Syrian Orthodox Church of Antioch is an old and mature church in its tradition and origin, yet when it comes to the Syrian Orthodox Church members in Australia, this church is considered amongst the young in age, deriving strength from its old tradition and origin. 

*       Some of the Syrian Orthodox Church's Community members commenced their migration to Australia early 60s. Those migrants first settled in Sydney and Melbourne, in the Eastern side of Australia.

*       The migration continued, and during the 70s some of the Syrian Orthodox Church Community members arrived to Australia, and took Perth, the capital of Western Australia, as their new homeland.

*       In an attempt to formulate their existence as a community, and in the year 1970, those first migrants established their first association in Sydney in the name of ST. EPHRAIM THE SYRIAN'S ASSOCIATION. This was followed, and in the year 1972 by the establishment of another association in Melbourne, and also in the name of our Great Saint ST. EPHRAIM THE SYRIAN'S ASSOCIATION.
