For such a time as this – booklet is a call to prayer

From Canberra Region Presbytery Chairperson, Vanessa Crimmins

for such a time cmykLate last year the Catholic Women’s Commission contacted the Presbytery to ask if we would be interested in doing something about family violence.  We, along with the Anglicans, were invited to meet together to discuss what could be done.  At the first meeting, I asked Ranjini Wickramaratne-Rebera from Gungahlin Uniting Church and Community Centre and Delia Quigley from Tuggeranong Uniting to attend with me.

The result of that initial meeting is the booklet, For Such a Time As This. It is this Presbytery’s contribution to An Ecumenical Response to Domestic Violence, “For Such a Time As This,” which is being held by the Catholic Commission of Women, on 18 June, 9.30am to 4pm (BYO lunch) at the Australian Centre for Christianity and Culture, Barton – more information on this event follows the description of the booklet and its call to prayer below.
