The ACM Sydney provides a range of services including:
We can assist in several ways to help families prepare for the funeral of their loved ones. Some of the things we can do include arranging a Priest or celebrant as well as a Church, advising on the Mass /funeral service and liaising with the funeral directors.
As well as Funerals we also offer a Baptism program.
The ACM holds two monthly 'Aboriginal' Masses.
First sunday of the month is at the Reconciliation Church at La Perouse.
Third Sunday of the month is at St Mary's Erskineville. Please check here for dates.
We can also organise or advise on incorporating Aboriginal content into your Mass or Liturgy.

God has asked us to love Him with our whole mind, heart and soul. So I must give myself to God as an Aboriginal. That is what God wants or else he would not have made me what I am. Really it is the only way I can go about it.
