WELCOME TO AUCKLAND CATHEDRAL OF THE HOLY TRINITY Celebrating God’s love Welcoming all - Worshipping God - Nourishing community - Empowering action A very warm welcome to the community of Holy Trinity Cathedral. If you would like to know more about Cathedral programmes, or receive regular information, please complete one of the blue cards at the rear of the Cathedral, or St Stephen's, and give it to a sidesperson at the door or to one of the clergy. FROM THE DEAN’S DESK ... Social Security Act 1938 Tomorrow, Monday 16th September, is the 75th anniversary of the enacting of the Social Security Act. To mark this significant anniversary, in partnership with Child Poverty Action Group, we are hosting a free public lecture tomorrow evening (7pm for a 7.30pm start). The keynote speakers for the evening are Associate Professor of Economics Susan St John (Auckland University), Professor of Economics Paul Dalziel (Lincoln University) and Senior Lecturer in Law Mamari Stephens (Victoria University). There will also be an opportunity for questions and discussion. Speakers will consider this piece of legislation which has, in many ways defined our social values and expectations as a nation. As well as reflecting on its history and the leadership of Michael Joseph Savage, this anniversary also invites us to look around us now, and forward to how we want our nation to be. We know that many of our social indicators, from literacy rates to child poverty are amongst the worst in OECD nations. We recognise also this relatively new phenomenon of ‘the working poor. In my lifetime whereas my parents, on one government employee income, could purchase a house and raise a family, today that is not possible. Today, unless you are among the most wealthy in our nation, both parents must work and often even two incomes will not necessarily provide security for a family. What has happened in these last 75 years? This anniversary provides a great opportunity for discussion and reflection. Invite some friends to join you! Jo Kelly-Moore, Dean

CATHEDRAL NEWS CHILDREN AND FAMILIES MINISTRY: Holy Trinity Cathedral is seeking to employ a new Children and Families Minister(s). This is a 10 hour position and focuses on Sunday morning ministry with children and their families and leading the team of enthusiastic KK teachers, as well as some connection with mainly music and our children’s choirs. For more information or to apply please contact the Dean. CATHEDRAL JUNIOR CHOIR: Our junior choristers sing evensong on Tuesday and Thursday evenings. We now have 45 choristers who sing regularly. With this number, and their busyness, we now need some help each Tuesday and Thursday evening from 4pm-6.15pm to help the children robe, keep their robing rooms, music folders and other resources in good order, and to be another adult around to help supervise. Handiness with a needle and thread would be great too! If there was a small group from our Cathedral community who might do this on a rostered basis that would be great. Our junior choirs ministry is a vital and wonderful way in which we reach out to our wider community. Can you help? Please contact Dean Jo or Director of Music, Tim Noon.
