FCCV: Multifaith Gathering to Acknowledge Victoria’s Bushfire Crisis

The Faith Communities Council of Victoria (FCCV) invites you to:

Multifaith Gathering to acknowledge Victoria’s bushfire crisis
Date: Tuesday 4 February 2020    Time: 11am-12pm
Location: Steps of Parliament House - Spring Street East Melbourne Victoria 3002

You are invited to a multifaith gathering to acknowledge Victoria’s bushfire crisis.

Join Victoria’s faith and political leaders for a special multifaith gathering on the steps of Parliament House on Tuesday 4 February 2020.

Hosted by the Faith Communities Council of Victoria and the Multifaith Advisory Group (convened by the Victorian Multicultural Commission), the gathering will bring Victorians together to pray for those who have lost their lives and for the devastation of land, property and wildlife caused by the recent bushfires.

Together, we will show our appreciation and say thanks to the firefighters, emergency services and volunteers for their dedication, bravery and service.

We will also demonstrate our support for leaders on all sides of politics as they continue to lead our state through this unprecedented tragedy.

With the fire season not yet over and with relief and recovery efforts expected to take months, if not years, this event will demonstrate the strength of our community and our support for each other.

We hope you can join us.

"As faith community leaders, we stand on the steps of parliament to pray for those who have lost their lives, for the devastation of land, property and wildlife and equally important the severe emotional upheaval caused by the recent bushfires.  We especially like to acknowledge the ongoing services provided by the Victorian Council of Churches Emergencies Ministry which, through their emergency chaplains, continue to provide a multi-cultural and multi-faith response to those severely affected in the bush fire regions of Victoria.” - Reverend Albert (Bhakta Dasa) Lange, Chairperson of the Faith Communities Council of Victoria.
