Anglicare Sunday

[caption id="attachment_3005" align="alignleft" width="250"] Terry Cleary and Julie Toomey - Anglicare staff[/caption] Anglicare Sunday recognises the extensive work of Anglicare NT. Anglicare is the social justice and welfare organisation of the Anglican church. It offers a wide range of services in the areas of early childhood, children, youth and families, support for older people, disability support, housing and homelessness, counselling, financial inclusion and mental health. David Pugh CEO of Anglicare NT comments that - "responding to community needs through 'loving service' requires persistence. One of the readings for October, Luke 18, tells the story of the persistent widow who repeatedly asked her local judge for assistance. The work we're involved in requires persistence. Social issues and needs in our communities are complex and I'm proud to say that Anglicare NT pursues a full life and social justice for all, with not only persistence but with every ounce of intelligence, kindness and professionalism at our disposal." Support can be given through prayer for the work of Anglicare, the staff, the people and communities being served.  More information can be found at the Anglicare website   Purchasing Christmas cards is another way to support Anglicare
