Ecumenical Service at Carmelite Monastery

On Sunday 22 March I was thrilled to join many members of our local community at the annual ecumenical gathering held at the beautiful Carmelite Monastery in Kew as part of the Kew Community Festival. The service was officiated by priests from Sacred Heart Church in Kew, St Paul's Anglican Church in East Kew and the Kew Uniting Church. The music was by Trinity Grammar Brass Choir and the Melbourne Women's Choir. It is an absolute thrill for me to attend this service each year and even more special this year with my family present.
