1parish 1refugee family is about parishes preparing to provide a warm and generous welcome to Syrian refugees who may be placed in Sydney.
We don't yet know what the needs of these refugees will be, but we can start to prepare to welcome them and to coordinate our practical assistance.
What can you do?
Pray for the victims of this persecution.
There are many ways in which you and your church could be involved.
It may not be that short-term accommodation will be needed. But a warm and generous welcome always will be.
Give to the Archbishop's Appeal for Syrian Refugees.
If the need arises for clothing, household goods and items for welcome packs, we will update this to provide a list of required items and details on how you can give them.
