It would have been difficult not to have heard something over the past few months about The Atonement: Lina’s Project if you live in Newcastle, the Hunter or Manning regions. Throughout July, August and September a mysterious penguin and egg started appearing on billboards, TV screens, in newspapers and magazines, as well as in social media feeds. Lina, who conceived the event, was interviewed by The Star and 1233 ABC.

On Friday 15 September the Catholic Diocese of Maitland - Newcastle will facilitate a victim-led community event of atonement. Lina, a victim of abuse at the hands of a member of clergy in the diocese conceived this event as a means by which she could regain a measure of trust in the Church and some healing for our whole community.
