Emergency Contact Details

There are some circumstances when it is essential for Orthodox Christians to contact their priest. This is especially the case when death is immanent, including for emergency baptism for infants, or for prayers at the end of life.

In these cases, please contact Fr Andrew by telephone, on 0450 078 882.

When calling, please be sure to advise the nature of the emergency, and what is desired – whether emergency baptism, Communion, Unction, prayers for the end of this life, or something else.

In the event that he is unavailable for an emergency, then we ask that you contact one of the other priests in Brisbane. For your convenience, the contact details for Brisbane priests in our Deanery are:

  • Fr Gabriel Makarov at St Nicholas Cathedral: 0419 308 338
  • Fr Gary Lapardin at St Seraphim Church: 0419 780 407
  • Fr Alexander Borodin at Vladimir Icon Church: 0447 289 381
  • Fr John Weir at Vladimir Icon Church: 0438 007 837

Note: All of the above priests are native English speakers.

When calling, please be sure to advise the nature of the emergency, and what is desired – whether emergency baptism, Communion, Unction, or prayers for the end of this life – and which church you are a parishioner of.
