WELCOME TO ST JOHN’S ANGLICAN CATHEDRAL, BRISBANE

St John’s Cathedral is home to a community which seeks to bring the best of Anglican tradition into dialogue with the issues and needs of our day.

We strive for open-minded conversation, seek to practice inclusion, and reflect on how we might see our beliefs put into action. We want this to be a place where people are encouraged to seek God and progress their own spiritual journeys.

The Cathedral itself, a renowned Brisbane landmark, serves as a magnet, where diverse people gather to worship, celebrate, seek solace, converse and learn.

Peace,
Peter Catt +
Dean of Brisbane

OUTREACH – OCTOBER 2019
THE HUNGER PROJECT

Every 3.6 seconds, somewhere in this world, someone dies of hunger. In the brief time it will take to read this story, at least 100 people will die of hunger, and 75% of them will be children.* The Hunger Project believes that this generation has the power to put an end to hunger altogether.

In response to “With Her: A Skilled Girl Force” theme for the 2019 International Day of the Girl (11th October), this month we support The Hunger Project appeal UnleaSHEd — a powerful global movement intending to educate, train and empower girls and women so they can end hunger and poverty for everyone, and enable their families and communities to flourish.

When women understand the power they have to initiate significant change, their actions influence other women and girls to do the same; thereby shifting perceptions of their role within society. Cycles of discrimination, oppression and abuse are altered, and they take on leadership and decision-making roles previously denied them. Shifting the mindset to “I can” causes change.

Can we give at least $1,000 to support The Hunger Project’s Unleashed Appeal for ending hunger by empowering women and girls to bring about sustainable change?

All the funds raised through Unleashed go towards ending hunger in Africa, India and Bangladesh. Donations of $2 or more to The Hunger Project are tax-deductible.

OUR PLACE IN HISTORY:
THE DEANERY’S HERITAGE APPEAL

The National Trust of Australia (Queensland) has listed The Deanery (Adelaide House) – the first Government House when Queensland was created on 10th December 1859. The balcony on which Sir George Bowen read the proclamation that day is in need of a great deal of work to restore it to a stable and safe condition. This means that in the Trust’s view it is essential to Australia’s heritage and must be preserved.

Donations to the National Trust of Australia (Queensland) for this appeal are allowable as deductions for tax purposes.
