St John’s Cathedral Child Protection Risk Management Plan
The wellbeing of our children and young people is fundamental to our Christian faith. The Anglican Church Southern Queensland and St John’s Cathedral have implemented a Child Protection Risk Management Plan to assist in protecting our children and other vulnerable people from harm in the church. The Plan helps to ensure that all of our ministries take place in a safe and supportive environment by providing strategies to identify and minimise potential risks.
A full range of Child Protection policies and documents, including the Archbishop’s Statement of Commitment, Code of Conduct for Ministry to Children within the Anglican Church Southern Queensland, and the Protocol for Dealing with Sexual Misconduct, can be viewed and downloaded at: https://anglicanchurchsq.org.au/safeguarding/professional-standards/resources-professional-standards/
If you would like a printed copy of any documents, please contact Lisa Clarke by email or phone 3835 2239. If you have any questions concerning the safety and wellbeing of children and young people, please don’t hesitate to see me.

Masks are Mandatory
The current health directives require that you wear a mask at all times when in the cathedral, other than when eating (Pre-meditation meal) or leading in the liturgy eg, as a reader or intercessor. Mask wearing is now therefore an additional condition of entry to the Cathedral. Masks will be available at the registration tables for those who do not have one. If you unsure as to how best to use a mask, here is helpful resource: https://www.worksafe.qld.gov.au/resources/campaigns/coronavirus/keeping-your-workplace-safe-clean-and-healthy-during-covid-19/face-masks-and-covid-19. We ask that you comply with this directive to keep others safe and to avoid causing stress to Stewards and welcomers. Thank you.
The Cathedral will reopen on Tuesday morning for the usual 11am to 2pm opening times.

This magazine has been produced by the community of St John’s Cathedral since Advent 2004. It explores in depth from a faith perspective the issues that shape and sway us.
The first edition noted that “we live in a sound- byte society, bombarded by the trivial. Finding ways to connect with the deeper issues of life is a challenge for many people.” The Eagle was created as an appropriate way “in which the Cathedral can engage in conversation with those who want to delve below the surface, and reflect on the important rather than the urgent and insistent.”
The Eagle began as a printed magazine and continued that way for 15 years. Now in its 16th year, given COVID-19 and the increasing cost of printing and distribution, The Eagle has gone electronic.
