On the first Sunday in June, after the St Therese’s 10:30am Mass the St Therese’s Parish AWE Group will host a discussion/workshop facilitated by Dr Heather Wearne who is a Volunteer Educator on the Voice Referendum.
When: Sunday 4 June 2023 at 11:30am
Where: PACE Function room. 48a Lincoln Rd, Essendon
Includes a morning tea in PACE
Over the course of 1 hour, and in a very relaxed and informal way, Dr Wearne will share a brief background on the Statement From the Heart; its importance, its place in a long history of First Nations Peoples; the call for Constitutional recognition and the reasons for it. She will cover why it matters so much to First Nations Peoples; the necessity for inclusion in the constitution where there has been none. And she will cover the Referendum: how it will work and why it matters: to give voice to all Australians on a matter of national, historical and social importance.
