This year marks 101 years since the landing of our troops at Gallipoli and 75 years since the Battle of Crete.

St Spyridon Church at Kingsford in Sydney was dedicated as a House of God by His Eminence Archbishop Stylianos and as a War Memorial church by the Governor of NSW, Sir Roden Cutler VC, AK, in 1975.

For the past 38 years we have honoured all those who fought for Australia and Greece in the Two World Wars and in other Conflicts around the world by conducting the Trisagion Service for Anzac Day.

This year’s ANZAC commemoration will be especially honoured by the participation of the Evzones from the Greek Presidential Guard in Athens.

The Evzones are in Australia, invited by the Hellenic Club in Sydney. They are coming to Spyridon Church due to the advice given by the Consul General for Greece in Sydney, Dr Stavros Kyrimis, who recognizes the importance of Anzac Day
