A plaque acknowledges Elsie's contribution as founding member of the Aboriginal Catholic Ministry.

The Reconciliation Church was formerly Our Lady of Good Counsel, which is part of the Malabar Parish. Aunty Elsie Heiss, with the support of Father Pat Hurley and Malabar Church Council, secured the church for the Aboriginal Catholic Ministry in 1998. Since then the ACM has hosted schools, religious and inter-faith groups, holding workshops on Aboriginal Spirituality, Stolen generations and Aboriginal identity, as well as liturgies and monthly masses.
