Service for Corporal Reg Hillier

CCCD 11 June 16   On Saturday 11 June 2016 a memorial service for the late Corporal Reg Hillier was held at Christ Church Cathedral. It was followed on Sunday 12 June 2016 by the reinterment at Adelaide River War Cemetery. Corporal Reg Hillier was the only Territorian who was killed in action in the Vietnam War. Sadly it took over fifty years for him to come home. However the journey is now over and he is at peace in the land he loved.

ASH WEDNESDAY

Ash WednesdayWe start our Lenten Observance on 18 February 2015. During Lent, Christians around the world reflect on all that is broken and sinful - in their own lives, in their communities, and in the world. We do so not with a sense of despair, but with hope, knowing that after Lent comes the light of Easter. But it is good to reflect on those things that are wrong, as we endeavour with the grace of God to do that which is right. This applies to ourselves as individuals, and also to our community and nation. For example, during Lent we reflect on our abject failures to look after the stranger in our midst, such as those who come here seeking refuge; and we cry for the damage we are doing to our earth in the pursuit of human greed. To commence our Lenten Observance we have the Imposition of Ashes at 7.30 am, as part of the Darwin Clergy Eucharist - all are welcome to attend. At 5.30 pm we will have a further Imposition of Ashes, followed by our first Lenten Study. Again, all are welcome.
