Thank you to everyone for their support of Fish Friday. We have had an excellent response and I am sure this will be a very successful fundraiser for Project Compassion. The great news is that following the heartbreaking news of Vanuatu and their devastation, Caritas Australia is working with Caritas Oceania and the Caritas Internationalist network to support the Diocese of Port Vila in its disaster response efforts. In addition, they have deployed a staff member to assist Bishop Bosco with the coordination of the humanitarian relief efforts on the ground.
The Australian Catholic community has responded with generosity and so too has the international Caritas network with many offering significant financial pledges. This support enables Caritas to respond to immediate needs such as, food, water and shelter, and to help rebuild homes, communities and livelihoods. The support Caritas receives through Project Compassion helps them deliver their vital long-term development programs, respond to emergencies and build the resilience of communities, like those in Vanuatu, to future disasters.
Therefore, our Fish Friday will support the communities in Vanuatu!! We thank you all.
Congratulations to the students who made their First Reconciliation today.
