Reconciliation Week 2019 Resources

The Week of Prayer for Reconciliation and National Reconciliation Week (NRW) are held each year between 27 May and 3 June. These dates commemorate two significant milestones in the reconciliation journey—the anniversaries of the successful 1967 referendum and the Mabo decision.

Reconciliation Week Pilgrimage of Healing

The pilgrimage of healing is run annually during Reconciliation week by the Covenanting team in Mission Resourcing. Each year, the campaign focuses on a different project within the Uniting Aboriginal and Islander Christian Congress (Congress) in South Australia. This year the fundraising effort will go towards helping the Oodnadatta community to build their own church.

The Oodnadatta Faith Community has worshipped at the open air church ground under the sun and stars for nearly 10 years. The Oodnadatta community have a dream to build a multi-purpose church to use for regular worship and ministry. Draft plans are being prepared for the building. Your support can help turn their dreams into reality.

Donations for the Pilgrimage of Healing can be made to: Oodnadatta Building Fund. BSB 704095 Account Number 193668
