Down Under, Anglicans to commemorate Defence Sunday on 6 November

Australian Anglicans are being invited to commemorate Defence Sunday on 6 November.

The day, which is held annually on the Sunday nearest to Remembrance Day (11 November), is intended to draw attention to the spiritual needs and wellbeing of those who serve in the Australian Defence Force and to foster prayerful support within the Church for those who serve in the ADF.

It is also designed to encourage clergy to consider service as full- or part-time ADF chaplains and to nurture cooperation between the ADF and Anglican dioceses and parishes across Australia.
