Metropolitan Paul Saliba holds the Holy Gifts before the Antiochian Patriarch

His Eminence, Metropolitan Archbishop Paul (Saliba) Primate of Australia, New Zealand and the Philippines serving with our Patriarch John X, Primate of the Greek Orthodox Patriarchate of Antioch and All The East (wearing green) in Balamand, Lebanon, Pentecost Sunday, 2017.

His Eminence has given his blessing and has accepted The Good Shepherd — Australian Orthodox Mission as being part of the Antiochian Orthodox Archdiocese in Australia. We at The Good Shepherd are grateful for his on-going support of our mission throughout the 15 year history of our congregation.

Sadly Metropolitan Paul of Thrice-Blessed Memory fell asleep in the Lord on 1st July 2017 and we are now awaiting the appointment of a new Archbishop by the Patriarch.
