ACKNOWLEDGING OUR PLACE

This impressive painting by Frances Belle Parker (2011, 160 cm x 500 cm, acrylic on Belgium linen) provides a stunning backdrop in the Baptistry of the Cathedral. In the place where we celebrate the sacramental power of water to enliven and cleanse, this work evokes the life-giving capacities of the Clarence River and reminds us that we stand on country that has long been sacred to the indigenous peoples of this ancient land.

The Cathedral stands on the traditional lands of the Bundjalung nation. We acknowledge and pay our respect to their elders past, present and emerging.
