“All people like to be appreciated for their service and work. And, our clergy work really hard as they fulfill their unique calls to ordained ministry – whether in parish, chaplaincy, pastoral care, advocacy, Episcopal, theological education and managerial spaces,” says Wellbeing and Development Officer Rebecca McLean


Thank you, Anglicare Southern Queensland aged care staff!

“From across our services, we wanted to thank our aged care staff and those of our industry colleagues for showing up day after day to care for our parents, grandparents, siblings, friends and relatives, and our community’s most vulnerable. It isn’t easy and it takes a special kind of person to care for older Queenslanders. To do so with love, care, and patience in such challenging times is a testament to the dedication and genuine compassion of aged care workers. Thank you. You are truly appreciated,” say Anglicare staff and Community Services Commission members

Putting on Christ

“Every person who is baptised promises, or in the case of young children godparents promise on their behalf, to turn to Christ. They are signed with the sign of the cross to show that they are marked as Christ’s own forever. And they are called to Christian ministry, to serve Christ in the world,” says Archbishop Phillip Aspinall
