Mr Albanese addressed the Congress during a church service held at the Resurrection of Our Lord, Our Lady of the Myrtles and Saint Elesa in Kogarah. The service marked the end of the three-day Congress.
In his address, Mr Albanese spoke about the Indigenous Voice to Parliament and praised the GOAA for issuing a statement in support of the movement.
The Clergy-Laity Congress is typically held every four years for representatives of the GOAA to discuss religious topics of interest amongst the clergy and public.
This is the first time the Congress has been held since 2013. More than 650 community representatives (including clerics) from across Australia attended this year’s event.
