Perth World Day of Prayer, 2022

On 4 March, many of the Duncraig ladies travelled to St Anselm’s Anglican church in Kingsley. The church displayed cherished items from England, Wales, and Northern Ireland.

Our pastor’s wife, Maria Rudolph, was the guest speaker, and she spoke of growing up in a non-Christian household in East Germany and then backpacking around Australia when she was 18. In Adelaide one day she wandered into a Lutheran church, was made to feel welcome and invited back to a Sunday service. Maria asked to be baptised soon after, wanting to know as much as she could about God, Jesus, and faith. She felt she was transformed, and God was calling her to minister to her church.

In the meantime, she met her husband Michael and had three beautiful children. Her path to ministry has met many obstacles, but she has been called to follow God, knowing as Jeremiah said, “I have plans for you”.

Maria has completed her vicarage at St Johns in Perth, which she described as a precious time. She is looking forward to journeying with God, following his calling and being a light to the world.
