On Wednesday the 9th of October at 10 am, a liturgy and morning tea was held simultaneously at all six ACU campuses to celebrate the acquisition of the Heritage Edition of The Saint John’s Bible. At the Strathfield Campus, Fides Lawton, Director of Libraries, introduced the event and spoke about the Bible, and Father Joseph Lam performed a blessing and dedication. Brother Dan Stewart, after whom the Strathfield Campus Library is named, performed the first official turning of the page to II Kings. Attended by over 40 staff and students, the launch concluded with guests enjoying a gelato cake in the likeness of The Saint John’s Bible. (by Medwenna Buckland and Sally Chik at Strathfield)
