b. Supplementary services of the Word;

c. Supplementary orders for baptism, confirmation, marriage, funerals, commissionings and other pastoral occasions;

d. Supplementary prayers for various occasions;

e. A new liturgical psalter;

f. Additional prayers and liturgical resources drawing, upon consultation, more extensive Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander prayers, motifs and other media to reflect the indigenous culture of our nation’s First Peoples.
