Anglican-Catholic Prayers for Reconciliation
In 2002 the leadership of the Anglican and Roman Catholic Churches in Australia set aside November 4th as a day of prayer for reconciliation and greater understanding between the two communities. This year St John's Camberwell joined in prayer with Archbishop Philip Freier and Archbishop Peter Comensoli on the 3rd November to mark this day.
