The Record Magazine Issue 8. Front Cover: Feby Plando.

“The Church herself in Australia will not be fully the Church that Jesus wants her to be until you have made your contribution to her life and until that contribution has been joyfully received by others.” These were the words of Saint (Pope) John Paul II during his momentous address to the Aboriginal people of Australia in 1986.

So, in this Issue of The Record Magazine, we take a look at our Australian Aboriginal culture, as well as the lives and contributions of it’s inspirational people and leaders.

We take you on a journey to Perth’s own Clontarf Aboriginal College, as well as to a meeting with Aboriginal Catholic Ministry’s newest recruit, Aggie Pigram.

We showcase the work of Carnarvon artist Bonnie Ingram, whose front cover image is entitled Bush Medicine Spes, as well as Magda Lee, from the Kimberley region and her image entitled, My Birth Story at Old Mission.

Remember, The Record Magazine is a magazine for the people and I hope you will enjoy taking the time to engage with us. Please feel free to share your thoughts and ideas via
