Bushfire Mass at St Patrick's Cathedral Thursday 12th at 1pm
Archbishop Hart invites the community of Melbourne to join him on Thursday 12 February at 1.00pm for Mass at St Patrick’s Cathedral (East Melbourne). The Mass will be offered for those who have lost their lives in the bushfires and for the spiritual support of those who have suffered through the fires.
Archbishop Hart said that the Church stands in solidarity with the community in this time of crisis and ‘this is a time in the history of our community, when we are seeing and will see in an extraordinary way the great generosity of the Australian community’. The Archbishop said that he has rarely witnessed the level of community anxiety and concern for people and communities through which the fires have passed or are still under threat.
In response to numerous requests from the Catholic community on how they can help victims of the bushfires, Archbishop Hart has launched a special appeal to raise funds to go to victims of the bushfires. The Archbishop said the funds collected will be used to assist victims of the bushfires.
