A message from the Archbishop of Melbourne

The Australian Anglican Church Calendar has been promoting the Anglican Church for over 25 years. Many of our churches have featured among its pages.

This has been the devoted work of Stuart and Jenny Allen, who have overseen all the administrative and written detail of the calendars, while Robin and Jenny Page have travelled many thousands of kilometres around Australia, so Robin could capture wonderful pictures of our Anglican churches in the bush and the cities.

 

Now that Stuart and Jenny have retired, their roles are being undertaken by Helen Drummond at St Peter’s, Eastern Hill, Melbourne, with assistance from other parishioners. Robin and Jenny will continue to travel and take more pictures of our Anglican churches in Australia.

It is good to see there is now this website where you can access a gallery of photographs, contact details and order forms. The calendar lists all the relevant lectionary dates and special feast days and features 13 churches each year.

The calendars can be used in church offices, Anglican schools and private homes. They can also be a source of fund-raising revenue in your parish, as well as being inexpensive gifts for family and friends, both in Australia and overseas.

I commend this publication to you.

Grace and peace in Jesus Christ

Yours sincerely

The Most Reverend Dr Philip L. Freier

Archbishop of Melbourne
