Fr. Martin Fleming, the Priest at St Ambrose Church Woodend, will give a talk on his experience as an Australian Army Chaplin over 15 years, attaining the rank of Major. He deployed on Operations with the 1st Royal Australian Regiment (RAR) group to Somalia in Jan 1993 for 4 months on a peace making mission. It was called Operation SOLACE, assisting the humanitarian aid agencies to deliver food and development aid and keeping Biadoba in Central Somalia relatively peaceful.
He will reflect as a religious/spiritual person being in a very male dominated military context and culture.
Fr. Martin will talk for about 30 mins and there will be a Q & A session afterwards.
