Beloved in Christ,
We wish to inform you that the Canonical Hierararchs of the the Episcopal Assembly of Oceania, under the Chairmanship of His Eminence Archbishop Stylianos of Australia, are speaking up against same gender marriage.
We must consider it our duty to advocate responding to the summons of all the Orthodox Hierarchs in Australia and raise a voice of opposition, each one of us to our respected Members of Parliament, asking them to vote against the proposed Bills. For this purpose His Eminence Archbishop Stylianos has directed that a website be established with a facility which allows each of us to voice our protest.
Please go to http://marriage.greekorthodox.org.au and speak up for marriage now and act immediately. Please note, each person must lodge only one submission, however family members may use the same email address multiple times. Please spread this email to as many people as possible! May God be with you!
With Archpastoral blessings,
Bishop of the Metroppolitanate of Australia and New Zealand
The Serbian Orthodox ChurchShare
