written by Betty Pike, Aboriginal Catholic Ministry

May you always stand as tall as a gum tree,
Be as strong as the rock Uluru,
As gentle and strong as the morning mist,
Hold the warmth of the campfire in your heart.
And may the spirit of God, The Creator of this great south land of Australia, Always walk with you.
Through Christ,
Amen.

We acknowledge the Traditional Owners of the land on which we meet and walk and pay our respects to their Elders, past, present and emerging.
