Donate to Coonabarabran Bushfire Appeal

The small community of Coonabarabran - population just over 3,000 people - is pulling together to help one another during the devastating bushfires which have seen the loss of some 40 homes; a huge blow to a small town like Coona.

Parish Priest, Father Greg Kennedy said the people of the town are extremely grateful for the outpouring of help they have received - both practical and prayerful - in the wake of the fires.

"The danger has not yet passed" Fr Greg added "please keep us in your prayers".
