As we approach Australia Day, we are becoming increasingly aware of the ramifications of Eurpoean settlement for our Nations Indigeneous people.
Ormond Anglican is actively working to promote Indigeneous Reconcilliation by:
– partnering with Nungalinya College in darwin – supporting the training up of Indigeneous leaders selected by their communities.
– Hosting the NATSIAC (National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Anglican Council) Gathering in 2017 &
– Encouraging engagement with Indigeneous people at a local level.
We have benefitted from the wisdom and encouragement of ‘Australians Together’ and would commend their most recent engagement with our Nations Reconciliation Conversation “Australia Day – pleasure or Pain”. The web address is given below – or just google it!
God bless Australia and those people fortunate enough to call our great country ‘home’!
