"SAINT DIMITRIJA SOLUNSKI"
Our previous Priest
In the last 40 years we have had 6 priests serve The Macedonian Orthodox Community of the City of Greater Wollongong “Saint Dimitrija Solunski” with our current priest being the Very Reverend Aleksandar Ivanovski.
The Very Reverend Aleksandar Ivanovski was born in 1950 in the town of Kumanovo in the Republic of Macedonia. He studied theology in Skopje before moving to Australia in 1977. He served as a priest at the Macedonian Orthodox Church St Petka in Rockdale from 1977 to 1987. He then returned to Macedonia and practised in Ohrid and Skopje. The Very Reverend Aleksandar Ivanovski again returned to Australia in 1996 and served as a priest at various Macedonian Orthodox Church's, including Cabramatta and Queanbeyan before becoming the priest at Saint Dimitrijia Solunski in Wollongong.
At wedding ceremonies, our priest is able to perform some of the wedding ceremony in English if it is a wish or request of the wedding couple.
