Acknowledgement of Country

DRAFT STATEMENT

We the Community of Aidan and Hilda in Australia acknowledge that our lives, our work and prayer and our meetings are grounded in the tribal lands of the various Aboriginal peoples of this vast country.  We acknowledge these peoples as the first peoples of the land and pay our respects to their ancestors and elders past, present and future.  We in turn commit ourselves to the nurture the lands we are given to care for.
