Jen Friedli, a teacher at Sapphire Coast Anglican College, was recently baptised in Eden by The Reverend Lou Oakes. Jen writes:
‘I’m so grateful to Bishop Mark and Reverend Lou Oakes for their support and guidance during my baptism. I was surrounded by loving support, and sure of my path in baptism due to the wonderful Reverend Lou.
What a wonderful Church family we have in Eden! Parishioners Myfanwy, Pete and their children have encouraged me to join them at Church and through them I have discovered my Church family. I’m forever grateful to all the Church in Eden who welcomed me so warmly.
My work as a Teacher at the Sapphire Coast Anglican College (SCAC), and the support I have had from the whole school community, has been a huge part of my faith journey. I have felt the grace of God as much before as I have since starting at SCAC. Tracey Gray (Principal of SCAC), Yvonne Brown, Lucy Trevaskis and my amazingly supportive sponsor, Myfanwy Russell, have been fantastic role models and I just feel so blessed and happy!’
