This year we are marking the traditional feast of All Souls Day by holding a gentle contemplative Eucharist. It will be a time to remember all the suffering and losses of this strange and challenging year, to hold before God all our loved ones who have died, and together to take a step of hope.
ACT Attorney General and Minister for Water, Energy and Emissions Reduction Shane Rattenbury will discuss the ACT’s progress toward 100% renewable electricity, the future of gas and environmental sustainability issues one year on from the 2020 ACT election.
He will be quizzed by young people in his electorate.
The event, part of the Sustaining Our Future Festival 2021 which is this year online, is hosted by the Social Justice and Environment Group, Holy Cross Anglican and St Margaret’s Uniting in Hackett, Canberra.
