Farewell to Archbishop Aspinall

“Your promotion in the Diocese of comprehensive Anglicanism is an important legacy for maintaining unity in the Anglican Church in this Diocese moving forward. Your chairing of the Diocesan Synod has been legendary. Your dry wit and good humour have lightened many a long Synod session,” said The Hon. Justice Debra Mullins AO on the occasion of the Archbishop’s farewell

“Not only have you held positions of responsibility, but you have exercised those positions with great dedication even when that dedication has been at your personal cost. You have led the church through times of significant challenge and your attention has constantly been on the mission of the church,” says a letter from the Primate to Archbishop Phillip Aspinall AC, which was read by Bishop Cam Venables on the occasion of the Archbishop’s farewell

“You remarked to me once that in a Roman Catholic vestry there’s a picture of the Pope; in an Orthodox vestry there’s a picture of the Patriarch; and, in an Anglican vestry there’s a full-length mirror. Amusing yes, but in your case not true. I like to think that in the vestries you have entered there has been not a full-length mirror, but an image of Jesus Christ instead,” said Archbishop Mark Coleridge
