Two special Masses this week

Published: Tuesday 5th August 2014

Dear colleagues,

We are holding two special Masses this week. Tomorrow we are celebrating the life of Cardinal Edward Clancy AC who died this weekend. Cardinal Clancy was, among many things, the first Chancellor of ACU.

The second Mass on Thursday celebrates Indigenous Week, St. Mary MacKillop's Feast Day and for the victims of the MH17 air disaster, for those who died in the China earthquake and praying for peace in the world especially those in Gaza, Syria, Iraq and Ukraine.

Our Campus Ministry is requesting that at 10:30am on Thursday, a minute's silence be observed during classes. Your cooperation is, as always, greatly appreciated.
