The Federation of Ethnic Communities’ Councils of Australia (FECCA) expresses its sympathy to Australia’s Greek Orthodox community following the passing of His Eminence Archbishop Stylianos.
FECCA Chair Ms Mary Patetsos said His Eminence has served Australia’s Greek Orthodox community with dignity and compassion since being elected Archbishop of Australia in 1975.
“Our thoughts are with Greek Orthodox Australians following the loss of their community and Church leader His Eminence Archbishop Stylianos,” she said.
“Archbishop Stylianos was a dedicated faith leader who served both the Church and the Greek Australian community with humanity and a strong sense of social justice.
“His Eminence was also a man who worked to build bridges between communities, showing strong international leadership in orthodoxy as well as promoting inter-faith relations in Australia.
“FECCA offers its condolences to all Greek Orthodox Australians at this time.”
FECCA is the peak, national body representing Australians from culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) backgrounds. FECCA’s role is to advocate and promote issues on behalf of its constituency to government, business and the broader community.
