#PrayforLebanon – Members and volunteers pray the Rosary for our bretheren in Beruit
Following the devastating explosion in Lebanon, Members of the Order of Malta’s Australian Executive Council joined Candidates, volunteers and family including Lebanese-Australian volunteers to pray the Rosary for our brethren in Beruit.
The Lebanese Association of the Knights of Malta (LAKM), Malteser International’s partner on the ground were swift into action treating casualties and mobilising volunteer teams to provide practical support for the vulnerable, especially elderly people and persons with disabilities.
The Order of Malta Australia has already committed $10,000 to support the emergency relief effort. If you wish to make a further donation you can do so online through our Emergency Relief Fund donation page.
Gifts $2 and more are tax deductible.
“We are overwhelmed with the material and spiritual support being directed towards our brothers and sisters in Lebanon. Sharing the “Rosary for Lebanon” via video call with diverse Members and volunteers of The Order of Malta truly strengthened our spirits. It reinforced our sense of unity as brothers and sisters in Christ, regardless of culture or background. We know through the intercession of Our Lady of Lebanon and St Charbel, along with the support of the Australian and International communities, the Order of Malta and the resilience of the Lebanese people, Lebanon will rise again from the ashes and grow like a Cedar of God.”
