Welcome to the website for St John The Baptist Antiochian Orthodox Church, Croydon Park. This site contains important information about our Church, our Parish, and our mission.

“St John the Baptist was established under the patronage of the Late His Eminence Metropolitan Archbishop Paul Saliba, of Thrice Blessed Memory, and is now under the patronage of His Eminence Metropolitan Basilios Kodesie Primate of the Australian, New Zealand & The Philippines’ Antiochian Orthodox Christian Church. It is currently guided by Parish Priests Father Elias Albaba and Father Paul Elhlou.

We are small, but growing group of Orthodox Christians based in the Inner West of Sydney. Our aim is not only to preserve and present the ancient face of Christianity to the modern world, but also to service the broader community through charitable drives helping those in need such as refugees, the homeless and the elderly.” [read more]…
