Our beloved archbishop, His Eminence Metropolitan Paul Saliba of thrice-blessed memory, reposed in The Lord on the morning of July 1st. News reached the Antiochian Orthodox community in New Zealand late on Saturday evening, in time for a memorial to be held for His Eminence after Divine Liturgy on Sunday morning in Howick. We pray that His Eminence’s memory be eternal, and we pray also for His Beatitude Patriarch John as he addresses the task of appointing a new shepherd for the Antiochian Orthodox Archdiocese of Australia, New Zealand and The Philippines.
