The Vodici (or Epiphany) celebrates the baptism of Jesus Christ by John the Baptist.stephen_daniels_300w.jpg

At the kind invitation of the Macedonian Orthdox Community of the City of Greater Wollongong, in January I attended Epiphany celebrations in Wollongong.

After the service in Stewart Street, Wollongong, the procession moved down to Wollongong harbour.

I was able to congratulate Daniel Stojanovski, who in reaching the cross first, receive the traditional blessing for a lifetime of good luck.

The Macedonian Orthodox Community continue to make a valuable contribution to the Illawarra region. My thanks again for their hospitality and warm welcome.
