Archbishop Peter A. Comensoli urged Catholics in and around Melbourne to support the Saint Vincent De Paul Bush Fire Appeal.
He said the SVDP are on the ground throughout our communities providing support in those life-giving ways that people need in times of disaster and tragedy.
The Vinnies Bush fire appeal can be accessed through their website or through your local parish.
Addressing those facing the uncertainty, danger and devastation of the fires….he said, “you are in our heartfelt prayers.”
“We ask the Holy Spirit bring renewed courage and strength to those who give so much of themselves at these critical times – our people at the fire fronts, those ministry and attending the injured, those caring for the homeless and displaced, those who will continue to bring support long after the lost ember has gone out.
“We place our trust in Lord, to shelter and protect our loved ones, friends and all those who need your help,” the Archbishop said.
