Stunning hymns by Dolly McGaughey
Today's reflection focuses on the power of music to lift the spirit.
Written and performed by our very own Torres Strait Islands Councillor Dolly McGaughey, these beautiful hymns evoke the spirit of the Islands.
The Roman Catholic Church began its ministries in the Torres Strait when Pope Leo XIII requested that the Sacred Heart Fathers establish a Mission in New Guinea. It was decided among the Fathers that the setting up and servicing of such a Mission would be better facilitated if a site was chosen in the Torres Strait. Parishes are now established at (Sacred Heart) Thursday Island, (Holy Family) Horn island, (St Joseph the Worker's Church) Hammond Island and (St Stephen's) Bamaga.
