The Holy Monastery of Axion Estin is under the spiritual and ecclesiastical leadership of His Eminence Archbishop Stylianos of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of Australia, within the jurisdiction of the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople.
Situated in Melbourne’s North, The Holy Monastery of Axion Estin serves the Greek and English speaking community in Northcote and surrounding areas.

Hourly Prayers of Saint John Chrysostom
A set of 24 short prayers attributed to St John Chrysostom. The shortness is deliberate; when it comes to personal devotion, many of the Fathers teach the efficacy of an "arrow prayer" that is easily remembered and easily meant whole-heartedly.
The following is the prayer of the current hour:
Fr. spyridon bonias AND fr. demetrius catrinei
"Our MONASTERY exists to bring the light of Christ into our community; this is our mission."
