Teaching people to lead

Posted in News

The Pilgrimage of Healing is run annually by the Covenanting team in Mission Resourcing during Reconciliation Week (27 May to 3 June). Each year, this campaign focusses on a different project within Uniting Aboriginal and Islander Christian Congress (UAICC) in South Australia. Since 2011, people across the Uniting Church have generously supported Pilgrimage of Healing projects involving youth leadership, transportation for remote communities and building developments.

From Wednesday 27 May to Wednesday 3 June this year, funds raised through the Pilgrimage of Healing will support training for Aboriginal people wishing to lead pilgrimages, such as the one detailed in “Look, listen – there are no straight lines” on pages 10-9 of the May edition of New Times. This will provide an opportunity for Aboriginal people across the state to ensure their stories are not lost and to share them with others.

The South Australian Covenanting Committee has planned two Kaurna spirituality pilgrimages this year. The first will take place in Adelaide on Saturday 23 May followed by a Marion pilgrimage on Saturday 12 September.

Uniting Church SA congregations, faith communities and individuals are invited to support these important pilgrimages and training for pilgrimage leaders through prayer or provision of funds, or by attending a pilgrimage.
