Every year, Catholics come together across Australia to acknowledge and celebrate the gifts of Australia’s First Peoples.
This year is particularly important following the COVID 19 Pandemic and its impact on the ways in which we interacted and made contact with one another.
For these resources NATSICC has decided to adopt the NAIDOC theme for 2021 – Heal Country.
2021 Resources include:
Liturgy Suggestions - Hymns, Prayers of Intercession, Homily notes
Inculturation suggestions - integrating Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander aspects of culture into the celebration
Statics showcasing First Nations Catholics in Australia today
Practical Activity - Knitting / Crocheting blankets for the NATSICC Palliative Care program
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Catholic Voices on…….. is a new section that shares some of the submissions and media releases that NATSICC has produced on various topics
Today our world is in need of healing – environmentally, spiritually and socially. We must all come together as a global community to fight the injustices of inequality, racism and environmental damage.
We hope that these resources will help your community to begin to Heal and in turn aid in the healing of those in most need. Please see below for a number of activities and guides to celebrate our special day in your Parish, school or organisation.
