The angel Gabriel appeared to Mary and said,
"Do not be afraid, Mary, you have found favor with God.
You will conceive and give birth to a son, and you are to call him Jesus.
He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High".

An ideal Christmas gift - ACK's recipe book
If a family member or friend loves cooking, then ACK's new recipe book would be just the thing to put under the tree or into their Christmas stocking - or treat yourself. The cookbook was created by some of our VCAL students, and after surveying staff and students it's been named Beyond the Ref – Recipes from the ACK Community. The book costs $20 and can be ordered via TryBooking. Profits will go towards rebuilding the primary school in the remote village of Laumana, East Timor.
