NATSICC has decided to use the same theme as NAIDOC week for the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Sunday celebrations - Because of her, we can!

 

Our Mothers, Sisters, Aunties, Grandmothers and Daughters have been, and continue to be the thread which holds our families together. They have fought for justice, reconciliation and social change.

 

Women form the backbone of communities across Australia. This is particularly true for Aboriginal and Islander Catholic Ministries. Women are at the forefront of these community driven organizations designed to meet the spiritual and physical needs of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Catholics.

 

It is time for us to celebrate and embrace the role that women play in our Ministries, our Church and our families. The Resource kit which NATSICC produces to assist Schools, Parishes and communities to celebrate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Sunday will highlight the women in our Church and community by providing Liturgy resources, stories of faith, prayer suggestions and youth activities.

 

Following on from the success of last year, multi media resources will again be available to allow Parishes and schools to engage with the more tech savvy students and congregations. Powerpoint presentations, videos and youth activities have been a successful addition to the resources and have seen a large increase in the online downloads of the Resource kit.

 

The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Sunday Resources will be available in May. Hard copies are sent out to every School and Parish in Australia. Should you require a hardcopy, please contact the NATSICC Secretariat is happy to organise postage.
