Miners imageSt Francis Anglican Church warmly invites miners, relatives, and community members to the Miner’s Memorial Service for 2013.

“Miner’s memorial Service is an opportunity to pay respect to our fellow and former workmates of the mining industry. The service shines a light on the most important aspect of mining, the safety ans health of the men and women who work in the mines around the Isaac Region.

Every year  on the 19th September a service is held to mark the anniversary of the state’s worst mining disaster on 19th September 1921, 75 miners lost their lves in a gas explosion in a coal mine at Mount Mulligan in North Queensland.”  See Letter of invitation passed on by BMA’s Karyn Looby here:  Letter of INVITATION to Miners Memorial Service Karyn BMA
