NATIONAL RESPONSE TO BUSHFIRE CRISIS
The Catholic Church plans a national response to bush-fire crisis. On Australia Day weekend, parishes across the country will be taking up a special collection at Masses with all funds to be donated to Vinnie's bushfire appeal. With broad and deep roots across the nation, the Church stands ready to walk alongside people through-out their journey of recovery.

Facing this exceptional crisis, we renew our call for insistent prayer for those stricken by drought and fire, for those who have lost their lives in the fires, and their families, for rain to quench the parched land and extinguish the fires, and for urgent action to care for our common home in order to prevent such calamities in the future.

An excerpt from the Bishops Statement Conference President Archbishop Mark Coleridge. Printed copies of the full statement are available in the church foyers. Thank you.

PRAYER DURING FIRE & DROUGHT
Each day during summer across our nation We pray to you, our God, for the gift of life-giving rain, For those threatened this day by a dry land, High temperatures, strong winds, breathing difficulties And extreme fire alerts in parts of our nation. Wherever we are and whatever we do today, We pray for our sisters and brothers Who have died tragically during the bushfires, We pray for their families and friends and community members, And for those who have lost their houses and properties. We turn to you, our God, as we reach out to support each other. We are family. We pray for the many dedicated people fighting fires, And those providing emergency assistance. We pray for those who continue to struggle With the ongoing drought and its devastation. We pray for them and their communities. We hear of the loss of livestock, animal and birdlife and habitat during drought and fire. We pray for the land and its healing. We pray for life-giving rain. We pray as family that we work together. We turn to you, our God, In this hour of need for members of our human family and for our common home. Amen.
