Further details

Chaplaincy and the Ngarara Willim Centre warmly invite you to attend a service to celebrate the annual Coming of the Light festival on Wednesday, 1 July.

The Coming of the Light festival marks the day the London Missionary Society first arrived in Torres Strait in 1871, introducing Christianity to the region.

Senior Chaplain Father Richard Murray will provide a short service before Torres Strait Islander singers perform traditional language songs.

The service will be followed by a light morning tea.
