Since the start of the war, millions of Ukrainians have fled their home country, with thousands of refugees coming to Australia.

In response to the continued conflict in Ukraine, Archbishop Peter A Comensoli has launched a special appeal, the proceeds of which will go towards providing aid and practical assistance to those who have been displaced and are without basic supplies.

‘There are no winners in war, only families torn apart. Sadly, this is the painful reality facing so many at this time,’ Archbishop Comensoli reflected.

‘I’m inviting the faithful of Melbourne to offer whatever they can at this time. And I pray that, together, we can be a sign of God’s nearness to those who need it most.‘

The Appeal for Ukraine launched on Sunday 3 December 2023 as a special Advent appeal but will remain open for as long as the need continues. Please give generously.
