NCCA – Commissioning of the Fourth General Secretary

Sr Elizabeth Delaney, a Sister of the Good Samaritan (SGS) of the Order of St Benedict, was commissioned on 4 March 2015 as the 4th General Secretary of the National Council of Churches in Australia (NCCA), based in Sydney. Elizabeth brings ten years' experience with ecumenical and inter-faith dialogues through the offices of the Australian Catholic Bishops Conference and her five years of service as a member of the NCCA Executive Committee. The NCCA was formed in 1994 with an expanded membership of churches to succeed the Australian Council of Churches that had commenced as a national committee of Australian churches in 1946.

"Wednesday 4 March was a most moving occasion – the day of my commissioning as General Secretary. Present were people from all areas of our ecumenical activity and beyond, Heads of Churches, members of the NCCA Executive, General Secretaries of state councils, former General Secretaries, members of NCCA Commissions and councils, staff, volunteers, friends, members of my family and Sisters of the Good Samaritan. This assured me, were I ever to doubt, that I am well supported by many, many people –both in action and in prayer. I am most grateful." Sr Elizabeth Delaney
