Eastern Hierarchs is an organisation of Christian eastern-rite jurisdictions in Australia. It is focused on working for the love of God spreading throughout the Church in Australia, in a spirit of Christ-like co-operation, without accusation, judgment, condemnation, or lust for power.
On Bright Monday, 24th April 2006, an annual ecumenical service was held to commemorate the suffering, death, descent and resurrection of Christ. 38 clergy and 8 nuns were present, including Metropolitan Archbishop Paul, and members of all levels of the clergy.
Churches represented include the Chalcedonian Orthodox Churches of Alexandria, Antioch, Cyprus, Greece, Romania; the Non-Chalcedonian Orthodox Churches of the Copts and Syriacs; and the Eastern Rite Catholic churches of the Maronites and the Melkites.
