NATSIAC Gathering 2014

NATSIAC 2Valerie Murphy was invited to be a guest speaker at the National Aboriginal Conference for the Anglican Church about Generational Healing. The Angelus Group from Maclean also attended the Conference. The first day of the conference we were part of a group that sailed the mighty Clarence River. Many of you will know Angelus Member Rev. Lenore Parker who graciously introduced us to many of her Anglican Colleagues, Priests and Bishops from all around Australia. Then we were given the opportunity to address a group at the end of the conference on Inner Healing.

This has resulted in further enquiry to have another day of Healing with our friends in different locations around Australia. Thank you for your prayer support and I appreciated the physical support of the Yamba and McLean members who joined us for the day.



Ordination to the Deaconate of an Angelus Member

Ordination-1All members are invited to Lenore Parker’s ordination into the Anglican Church as the first Aboriginal woman in this Diocese to be ordained as a Deacon as part of her progress to ordination as an Anglican priest. It will be a wonderful day and a celebration of her many years of ministry to the indigenous and the non-indigenous communities.

Lenore has helped us in many ways to reach out across cultural barriers to share the love of Jesus in our hearts with each other.
