Indigenous Australians and the Church

Aboriginal Catholics have yet to take their rightful place in the Church, judging by input to the recent Christ and Culture Indigenous Theology Conference attended by more than 80 indigenous Christians at Noosaville. The "Christ and Culture Indigenous Theology" conference looked at ways to support those involved in evangelising. Brisbane archdiocese's Murri Ministry co-ordinator Ravina Waldren said, talking to conference-goers, it was clear the general lack of Church interest in marking a number of key indigenous events in 2007 has hurt many indigenous Christians.
