​Attentive to

Relationships of Compassion.

Acknowledgement of First Peoples

We acknowledge with respect and wonder, the traditional custodians of this sacred land on which St Joseph’s By The Sea stands… The Yalukit-Willam of the Boon Wurrung people and Kulin nation.

We honour their elders past, present and emerging and acknowledge their wise care of the land, rivers, creeks and sea, and food resources during the hundreds and thousands of years they walked this area.

We give thanks for their insight, wisdom and caring.

Let’s learn from the First Peoples of our countries and wholeheartedly support them.27th General Chapter
