The first new parish for many years, St Therapon in Warhoonga, northern Sydney, began services in February 2006. Soon after, [[St. Andrew's Orthodox Press]] published their first book, ''The Divine Liturgy of Our Father among the Saints John Chrysostom'', a bilingual text. See [[#Organisations of the Archdiocese|below]]
Archimandrite [[Iakovos (Tsigounis)]] was elected to be an auxiliary bishop for the Archdiocese of Australia, with the title of Bishop of Militoupoleos. Bishop Iakovos is the first Australian-born bishop to serve in Australia, and in the Archdiocese, and the first graduate of St Andrew's Theological College to be made a bishop.
