In this Issue 24 of The Record Magazine, we take a look at the theme of Soul.

The past few weeks and months have been a trying time for many. Following weeks of devastation from the bushfires, the effects of COVID-19 are now well and truly upon us.

Unfortunately, the situation has meant that it was not possible to print this issue of The Record Magazine. So, while churches across Perth and the rest of the nation have temporarily closed – many Masses and other services are now being streamed online. It is testament to the fact that Church still has life – it still has a ‘Soul’!

In this issue, Sr Margaret Scharf explains why it is important to nurture the soul and how we can do that. Ali Biddiscombe speaks with musicians Hugh Lyndon and Grace Feltoe about their experience of sharing their talents as students, teachers and cantors.

Amanda Murthy looks the Sacrament of Marriage, and shares the experiences of two Perth couples – one recently married and the other married for nearly 50 years!
