“In unity we raise our voices to the Lord.”
This annual event is an expression of the Tri-Diocesan Covenant between the Anglican Diocesan of Newcastle and the Catholic Dioceses of Maitland-Newcastle and Broken Bay. It is organised by the Catholic Parish of Cessnock and the Anglican Parishes of Mount Vincent, Kurri Kurri & Weston and Cessnock.
Beginning with an Aboriginal Smoking Ceremony, followed by a Service during which we will give thanks for the blessings bestowed on us over the past year, acknowledge our sins, pray for what we need and ask for God’s blessing on our land.
A shared picnic lunch will follow. BYO everything. Activities will be provided for the children.
