Coming of the Light

Coming of the Light is a holiday celebrated by Torres Strait Islanders on 1 July each year. This anniversary celebrates the adoption of Christianity through island communities during the late nineteenth century, with the landing of Christian missionaries on Erub Island on 1 July 1871. Religious and cultural ceremonies are held by Torres Strait Islander Christians across the Torres Strait and on the mainland to celebrate this day.
