20 June 2024

Sacred Heart School, Kew, student Liza fled war in Ukraine. She and her family found safety and a home in Melbourne.

Melbourne Archdiocese Catholic Schools (MACS) schools care for over 1180 refugee students and their families, providing settlement support and connection to community. On World Refugee Day, we join Pope Francis in prayer: ‘that migrants fleeing from war or hunger, forced to undertake journeys fraught with danger and violence, may find welcome and new living opportunities in their host countries’.
