Dear CES Members and friends


A friendly reminder that CES  May public forum is to be held this coming week.


I guess most of us have followed the federal budget to some extent, and have considered the pros and cons.  More encouragement for small business but nothing for affordable housing?  What else?  Why not come along and hear well-known journalist, Paul Bongiorno give his views. Our forum Chair, Bishop George Browning will open discussion to attendees.  Will you join us?  The topic is Budget Equity


 Paul Bonjiorno AM  has been a journalist for forty years and in that time has won four national Walkley Awards for journalistic excellence.  He has a master’s degree (STL) in Theology from the Pontifical Urban University, Rome.


Time and Date: 7.30 pm Thursday 21 May, 2015


Venue: Australian Centre for Christianity and Culture, Corner Kings Ave and Blackall St, Barton


Cost:  A donation of $5 is requested to cover the costs of the evening.  Supper is provided.  No need to book just come along.
