On Sunday the 03rd of October, the Diocese of Darwin’s Plenary Council members celebrated the beginning of their journey with Mass at St Marys Star Of The Sea Cathedral, led by Bishop Charles Gauci.
Prior to commencing the Mass, a prayer was offered by Reverend Andrew Williams (who was accompanied by two other members) from the Uniting Church in Darwin. Following the prayer, Rev Andrew gifted a prayer candle as a token of their pledge to pray & support the Plenary Council.
“The Uniting Church decided that as you commence the Plenary Council, we wanted to be in prayerful solidarity with you,” Reverend Andrew said during a speech before he led the prayer.
‘My dear friends I am so grateful that members from our sister Church from down the road came to promise their Prayers and their support for the Catholic community as we gather in this assembly. We thank them and we continue praying for a fuller Unity between us in Christ. Thanks be to God!’ said Bishop Charles Gauci.
