::I had not, admittedly, distinguished between parish and mission or monastery. In ROCOR, I had included Holy Cross Australian Orthodox Mission, Melbourne [http://www.australianorthodox.org] and St John the Baptist Skete, Sydney. However, I had also completely forgotten about St Anna's Convent, Melbourne, which is English-speaking - are there services there? — ''[[User:Pistevo|Pι]]''[[Special:Listusers/sysop|s]]'''[[Usertalk:Pistevo|τ]]'''[[Special:Contributions/Pistevo|é]]''[[User:Pistevo|vο]]'', at 19:41, May 25, 2006 (CDT)
::: Sr Virginia (Riasophora Theodora) recites all the hours at her convent at Preston Vic, usually alone, but occasionally with one or two others. Fr Joakim at Kentlyn NSW is an EFL priest, and well loved. He usually says the hours and celebrates liturgy if any people are there. Spring Street Mission Melbourne Vic now only has three or four periodic attenders. Services there are infrequent with Hieromonk Benjamin having to travel to Melbourne from interstate. The future looks bleak for the Spring Street mission.
