A school sacristan’s thoughts on “Embracing Joy”

“We must treat each part of the body kindly to maintain a healthy relationship with our whole body. Thus, it only makes sense that we should love and care for everyone. It does not come down to some being more important than others, but rather that we are all people made in God’s image, which is reason enough to celebrate our diversity,” says St Aidan’s Anglican Girls’ School sacristan Monica Behrenbruch

Archbishop's 2022 message to school staff

“I am so grateful for the work you do educating students to flourish and to serve God and the common good…Each school has its own story and culture, but there is a shared identity and purpose across the Anglican family. And, embodying what is true, gracious and lifegiving is at its heart…Every one of us is called by Jesus to participate in his Church, his body, and each of us is blessed with unique gifts and talents to carry out his mission,” says Archbishop Phillip Aspinall
