Hello friends,

1] A big thank you to all who attended the Prayer Vigil for Mayuran Sukumaran and Andrew Chan on Tuesday at the Cathedral. There was a great turn up of people from all walks of life. The feedback was wonderful: prayerful, moving, necessary, uplifiting.

Sadly, the news for the boys is not good and, the latest reports are that execution is imminent. We continue to hold them and their families in prayer and, we pray for an end to the death penalty around the world.


2] The IP4P group working on the Charter for IP4P will meet at the Cathedral at 6pm on Tuesday 24th Feb.

If anyone has suggestions for us to consider then pls let me know before that date.


3] The next IP4P Meeting will be at 6pm on Wednesday 25th Feb at “Marketview”, which is 60 Market Street. Thanks Mary Sparks!


4] Pls let me know by no later than 1st March of your intention to come along to Gallipoli Mosque on Saturday 7th March. Bus(ses) will leave the Cathedral at 10.30am for an arrival at the mosque for midday prayers. Cost for tour is $5-; $5- for bus; the meal will need to be purchased – Gary knows the restaurant.


5] We have been made aware of another peace event:

“Illawarra Standing Together”

There is a luncheon event in the Wollongong Civic Plaza

24th February, 12.30 to 2pm

It is another peace rally; it is a good idea for IP4P to come along. Perhaps we need to make some contact with the organising committee of this group. I will forward them this email.


Let us continue to hold one another in thought and prayer as we continue to discern ways of bringing peace and harmony into our homes and city and country.


With every blessing


Fr Ron and Gary Ismael
