Centenary of Anzac Service – Sunday 19 April 2015

Rising SunOn Sunday 19th April 2015 at 6.00 pm, in conjunction with the Darwin sub-branch of the RSL, we are hosting a service to commemorate the Centenary of Anzac. It is to be a quiet and reflective service honouring those who served, remembering those who have paid the supreme sacrifice, and praying for all those who suffer because of war. In particular, we will be remembering three parishioners of Christ Church Darwin who served in the Great War - Lieutenant Charles Lloyd Herbert and Private Sidney James Lauder who both died at Ypres in October 1917, and their friend Private Willie Allen, an aboriginal soldier, who survived and returned home in 1919. The address will be given by Lieutenant Colonel Matt Campbell, Commanding Officer of the North West Mobile Force (Norforce). For further details, please contact the Dean, Fr Keith Joseph, on 0409 783 452.
