St George’s has a long commitment to the Australian Board of Mission, South Australia. Some members of our congregation have served in Papua New Guinea and we are proud of these links. As well, mmbers have taken part in the ABM visits to Dogura. We support the ABM Auxiliary and two members of the congregation are on its board. The parish has also been a place for Anglicans from the Solomons when studying in Adelaide.
Annual General Meeting of ABM Auxiliary
This will be at St Saviour’s, Glen Osmond, Friday 16 March at 10am, to be followed by Mass & shared lunch. Please come along & support the work of the Adelaide Auxiliary. For year ended December 31 2017 the Adelaide Auxiliary forwarded $13,680 to ABM Head Office for various projects – by far the best amount raised by any Auxiliary in Australia.
We have forwarded $1,150.00 to ABM for their Adult Literacy Program in PNG in March. These funds are the proceeds of ABM boxes, collected over the last 18 months. Many to thanks to all box holders for your generosity. If you would like a box, please collect one from the table at the back of the church, or see Tim Hender.
ABM Christmas puddings were sold again this year for Christmas.
