"We, Sisters of Mercy Parramatta Congregation, will open our hearts to the cries of the poor using our energies, gifts and resources to address violence and discrimination especially for ... Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples..." (2016 Chapter Statement)

NAIDOC Week is an opportunity for all Australians to learn about First Nations cultures and histories and participate in celebrations of the oldest, continuous living cultures on earth. You can support and get to know your local Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander communities through activities and events held across the country.

The National NAIDOC Theme for 2024 is "Keep the Fire Burning! Blak, Loud and Proud". This year's theme celebrates the unyielding spirit of Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander communities and invites all to stand in solidarity, amplifying the voices that have long been silenced.
