Anglicare Victoria launches bushfire emergency appeal

as Anglicans across state pitch in with help and prayers 

In Melbourne Vicar General of the Diocese of Melbourne, the Very Revd Dr Andreas Loewe, asked Anglicans to pray for all those affected by bushfires across the nation with a prayer (below) that was recently heard in St Pauls Cathedral in the past days.

Almighty God and heavenly Father, we pray for this world that you love so much 

that you sent your Son Jesus to be born as the child of Bethlehem: 

We pray for the safety of those sheltering from fires and those fighting fires, 

for livestock, native animals, paddocks, bushlands and sacred places. 

We remember our own loved ones and those who are dear to us facing this crisis. 

We pray for those tending to the injured, the frightened and the broken-hearted, 

for emergency services, emergency broadcasters, chaplains and counsellors. 

We ask for your forgiveness for our own failures in safeguarding your good creation, 

and pray for political and community leaders, and all those responding 

to the current crisis in our nation. 

Above all, we pray the peace that passes all understanding, 

in our nation and state, in our homes and in our hearts. 

This we ask in the name of your Son, Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.

Anglican-Catholic Prayers for Reconciliation

In 2002 the leadership of the Anglican and Roman Catholic Churches in Australia set aside November 4th as a day of prayer for reconciliation and greater understanding between the two communities. This year St John's Camberwell joined in prayer with Archbishop Philip Freier and Archbishop Peter Comensoli on the 3rd November to mark this day.

To listen to the Homily given by both Archbishops on this evening please visit the Sermons page
