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