NATIONAL LAMENT– Catholic Religious Australia (CRA)
We are a society which has forgotten how to weep ~ Pope Francis

Catholic Religious Australia is launching a “National Lament”. The National Lament is a campaign of prayer, penance and action for people seeking asylum in Australia.

Many people throughout Australia are disturbed by the punitive and harsh policies and conditions to which people seeking asylum in Australia are being subjected. 

In response to the desire for prayer and action, we, the Catholic Religious of Australia are seeking to make a Christian response to these people, rather than treating them as a “problem” to be solved. We invite you to join us.
