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 2018
Plan International –
“Because I am a Girl”

“All the women sleep on one side and the men sleep on the other side … We don’t sleep well.” Leila explains, “We go to the nearby bushes to change our clothes at night. In the morning, all the children openly defecate by the tent. The men go to the toilet but we [girls] wait until night for the loo. I take my cousin Munaza with me.”

As numbers have grown in less than a year, the public health conditions in the Balukhali camp in Bangladesh (where Leila lives) are worsening due to poor water quality and sanitation facilities, increasing the risk of serious public health hazards. In many places around Cox’s Bazaar, one latrine is being used by more than 100 people.

Can we give at least $1,000 to help Plan International’s Because I am a Girl program improve life for the girls who are in the Rohingya refugee camps?

October Outreach envelopes are available at the Outreach Boards in the Narthex and
St Martin’s House.

Support girls to be leaders of change

Girls around the world raised their voices for justice and equality by taking over more than 600 positions of power to mark International Day of the Girl 2017. In an initiative of Plan International’s Because I am a Girl, hundreds of leaders and decision-makers worldwide stepped aside to let girls take charge in more than 60 countries.

But for Leila and the many hundreds of girls in refugee camps in Bangladesh, this seems a long way from the daily issues of managing their health and safety, having clean water, food, education and training, and avoiding sexual harassment and violence.
