announcement correction and addition

-Apologies for the last post and false announcement link.  The corrected link is here: January 17, 2016 and is also updated on the web version here

A clarification also that submissions for our Celebration AGM report is January 22nd.

 

A further opportunistic notice of this as well:
If you have questions about the interactions of Christian / Aboriginal spirituality, this would be a good event for you.  It would also be an act of reconciliation for you to attend.  Incidentally, Sharon quietly visited st. Augustine’s two weeks ago to pray with us.
