Pentecost Forum 2007 27 May 2007 12.30pm

New Pentecost Forum 2007
Pentecost Sunday, 27 May, 12.30-6.30pm
Australian Catholic University,
North Sydney (40 Edward St)

Guests: Rev Dr Jojo Fung, Sr Susan Connelly, Mr Tony Kevin and Mr Graeme Mundine Hear Rev Dr Jojo Fung, a Malaysian Jesuit priest who ministers to Malaysia's Orang Asli indigenous people. His perspective will have particular relevance as we celebrate the anniversaries of the 1967 referendum and the ground-breaking 1987 "Bringing Them Home" report which recognised Indigenous Australian human rights. Dr Fung will be joined by Sr Susan Connelly, a Josephite Sister and well-known advocate for East Timor, Mr Tony Kevin, a distinguished former Australian ambassador to Poland and Cambodia and 2003 "International Whistleblower of the Year", and respected Indigenous Christian leader Mr Graeme Mundine. These speakers will offer fresh perspectives on how people of faith can help build a just and compassionate society and world. The Forum will include opportunities for dialogue and self-initiatives in the spirit of our unique "free space" method of grassroots networking and organising which allows people to be heard and individuals or groups to act. For example, peace activist and former Iraq human shield Ms Donna Mulhearn will present a workspace on Christian non-violence.
