Resources for National Reconciliation Week

27 May to 3 June is National Reconciliation Week, also known as the Week of Prayer for Reconciliation.

The Reverend Glenn Loughrey, a Wiradjuri man, artist and priest-in-charge of St Oswald’s Anglican Church in Melbourne has written resources to help engage with the week. 

Glenn uses a powerful combination of art, poetry and story to explore the experience of exile as a means of transforming injustice.
