    Abstract

    Many Australian Christians know little of the many others who, by God’s grace, were effective witnesses to Christ. In the first Australian Anglican prayer book, An Australian Prayer Book (AAPB, 1977), a few local festivals were included – Australia Day (January 26), First Service at Sydney Cove (February 3), Anzac Day (April 25) – but not Australian people.
    In A Prayer Book for Australia (APBA, 1995), the Calendar included a dozen or more people in whose lives God’s grace was so evident that they are commemorated in some part of this land. It also included some Festivals previously unobserved (e.g. Mary and Joseph) and allocated readings for others (e.g. New Guinea Martyrs).
    Australian Anglicans Remember covers all Australian and New Zealand commemorations listed in APBA, and festivals not included in AAPB.
    Each entry includes several sections:
    • ‘Who was ...?’ (or similar heading)
    • ‘Commemorations’ lists places where the person’s memory is perpetuated in Australia (where known).
    • ‘Resources for liturgical use’ include a Service introduction, Sentence(s), Prayer(s) and Readings, chosen or composed to reflect the God-given charisms displayed in the life and ministry of the person(s) concerned.
