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 is launching a special Advent appeal, the proceeds of which will go towards providing aid and practical assistance to those who have been displaced and are without basic supplies, especially as winter approaches.
‘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.‘
