the interfaith movement grows and religious communities come together more often for interfaith services, especially whenever
there are natural disasters, such as the recent tsunami, new questions are being asked about the possibility of praying together.What does it mean when we gather together in remembrance and to pray for the innocent
and those who suffer and grieve, or simply to worship God?It is timely to ask
the question if we can pray together and if so when and in what way?

Invitation to Meeting - Reconciliation in Bayside 2005
Dear Aboriginal Reconciliation Supporter
As you may be aware, Jungai Inter-Church Aboriginal Awareness Group
decided to close late last year, after some 16 years.
Bayside Indigenous Rights & Reconciliation Action Group - only seven
years old - decided it would be beneficial to join with Jungai
supporters in the formation of a continuing Reconciliation action group within the Bayside area.
We see this as an opportunity to review, renew and reform what we have been trying to do.
The enclosed / attached 'initiating proposal' suggests some possible priorities.
You are invited to a meeting to consider these proposals, and to help decide on local Reconciliation action into 2005.
WHEN Monday February 14th at 7 pm.

29th of May, 2004 at 2pm Where: Bayside City Council Corporate Centre, 76 Royal Ave Sandringham.
This our first initiative under the direction of Father John Dupuche the groups founder is an Interfaith Walk with the theme of Aboriginal culture as our focus. The walk will begin
just outside Black Rock House and then head in the direction of Red Bluff (the beautiful eroded cliffs of half Moon Bay Black
Rock) and the return via the foreshore to Black Rock House. Though the walk is relatively short it sends a powerful message
to the community that we are serious about reconciliation and we can walk together in unity with the original inhabitants
of this magnificent land and at the same time learn a little bit of what it means to be Aboriginal through stories and reflection.
If you are interested in attending
please mark in your diaries/e-organisers the 1st of May at 2pm outside Black Rock House; there is a bus stop outside
Black Rock House should you need it. The walk is open to all and it is free (though donations are welcome please discuss with
