Prayer, Thanksgiving, Peace
Solidarity in Mercy and Compassion, Multifaith Prayer for New Arrivals is a multi-faith event offering reflections and prayer in common is offered for the good of the all – in Shepparton, in Australia, and in the conflict-ridden parts of our world.
You are invited to join with people of all faiths in solidarity. You are invited to come together in mercy anc compassion, you are invited to act for peace for all those experiencing fear, terror, threat, dislocation and lack peace, here, and elsewhere on our planet.
One of the key foundation practices of people of faith is hospitality to the stranger. When new arrivals migrate, resettle, or seek asylum in the Goulburn Valley, our community gives opportunities to belong, to have acceptance, worth and participation in events in the community. Over time, we come to appreciate what the community has and to give thanks for typical Australian generosity, compassion and mercy for the stranger.
Participating in this events will be faith leaders and adherents from Christian churces, the Sikh community, the Islamic community, the Buddhist community and the African community.
