Order of Malta Australia


Members provide support, companionship and solidarity with bushfire victims


Despite the torrential rain this weekend, members again visited the parishes of Batemans Bay and Moruya where they received a warm welcome from both the parish priests and congregations.

Although the initial phase of the disaster is over, Fr Martin from Batemans Bay mentioned the value the Order of Malta brings to the community by ‘being present’ as the needs of his parishioners will present themselves as they now enter the recovery phase.

Fr George at Moruya Parish echoed these sentiments and during Sunday’s mass used our member’s presence as an example to his congregation that their trauma and suffering has been acknowledged by the greater church community and that others care for their welfare and wellbeing.

With each visit, members continue to build on the already established friendships and make new ones. Members will continue to make monthly visits to the parishes to provide camaraderie to the impacted to communities and identify opportunities to assist victims as they arise.
