Introducing our very own Lucia Rich who is part of our South Head Anglican Parish community!

My earliest memorywas fishing for tadpoles after school with friends in a stream near home. I was about 9 years old.

I grew up in in Sydney. My family moved to Sydney when I was 7 years old but moved back to Hong Kong (where I was born) when I was 12. I came back to Sydney for year 11 and 12 to do the HSC. I have been here since…which is a very long time!

As a child Iable to speak multiple languages.

My favourite vacation spotanywhere near the ocean. I love walking on the beach and watching the waves. 

I came to faithwhen I was quite young. I heard bible stories through scripture classes and learnt how much God loved us. I knew that God was always by my side and that I was never alone. It wasn’t till many years later through an Alpha course (with Ann Loveridge) that I learnt about the Holy Spirit and what following Jesus really meant. I was baptised by Rev Cliff Parish at St Peter’s a number of years ago.

An item on my bucket list isTravel – internationally and domestically. I love travelling. With COVID I have done more domestic travels. I have planned a big trip to the Kimberley next year.

My first music concert waswatching and listening to my son play at his 1st piano concert at primary school. I think I was more nervous than he was!

The best decision I ever made wasdeciding to stay in Sydney and not moving back to Hong Kong after university.

I first came to SHAP … with St Peter’s at Watson’s Bay about 20 years ago and have been part of SHAP since we amalgamated.

Currently I belong to a book club with a group of friends. The book I am about to start is called “The Happiest Man on Earth” by Eddie Jaku.

In my spare time I like tospend time with friends and family for coffee or for a meal.

The best advice I ever received wasin all matters, pray. God is listening and He has His best timing for all things.
