Artico Ensemble was estabished in 2000 as a professional touring group, performing well-known repertoire in venues such as churches and art centres in citites and regional Australia. Our aim is to bring good music at an affordable price to audiences that may otherwise not be able to experience it life in mainstream venues, not necessarily being used for live music performances, to their full acoustic potential as locations for our chamber music concerts.

Social Justice Sunday 2013
Posted by admin - 28/09/13 06:43AM - - 1/52/53/54/55/5

The Australian Bishops' Social Justice Statement this year calls on the Christian community and all Australians to stand in solidarity with our neighbours around the world living in conditions of extreme poverty. The title comes from the Gospel reading for the 26th Sunday in Ordinary Time about the poor man Lazarus who lies unnoticed at the gates of the a man (Luke 16:19-31).

In 2000, the world leaders of 189 nations, including Australia, gathered together and committed themselves to tackling global poverty. Their Declaration gave rise to eight Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) to be achieved by 2015. While great progress has been made over the past decade, many of these goals will not be fulfilled: Around the world, a quarter of a million women still die in childbirth each year and eight million children die annually from malnutrition and preventable diseases. One billion people remain in extreme poverty and 20 per cent of the poorest in the world live in countries near Australia.

‘In our region’, the Bishops say, ‘Australia is the rich man and Lazarus is at our gate.
