ABORIGINAL AND TORRES STRAIGHT CELEBRATIONS

This weekend, masses at St Anthony’s and Resurrection recognised and celebrated our indigenous people. This coincided with the Aboriginal Catholic Ministry of Melbourne week’s celebrations.

 

  Celebrating NAIDOC Week 2024:

Keep the Fire Burning!

Blak, Loud and Proud

 

The 2024 National NAIDOC Poster incorporating the Aboriginal Flag and the Torres Strait Islander Flag

 

NAIDOC Week 2024 ignites a spirit of resilience and pride as we embrace the theme 'Keep the Fire Burning! Blak, Loud and Proud'. This theme echoes the enduring flame of First Nations cultures, shining brightly through adversity and celebrating the richness of First Nations heritage.

Throughout NAIDOC Week, from July 7th to July 14th, 2024, we honour the traditions, achievements, and voices of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. It's a time to recognise the contributions of First Nations communities to our shared history, culture, and identity.

Commemorating NAIDOC Week promotes understanding, respect, and unity. Let's keep the fire burning by amplifying First Nations voices, advocating for justice and reconciliation, and building a future where all Australians can thrive together.

Parkmore shopping centre will host a Welcome to Country ceremony on 8 July from 10am until 11am. Other events can be found on “Local NAIDOC week events” Google site.  Some of the activities include art and craft displays and workshops, St Kilda football club event at Sandringham... something for everyone and great for school holiday activity. Perhaps grab a book at the library or search the internet for more information.

This is a good opportunity to learn more about indigenous culture and issues effecting indigenous people.

 

Have a good week

Vicki, Brian and Neil
