Bishop Visits Coonabarabran

Bishop McKenna visited Coonabarabran at the weekend and celebrated the parish Mass with Father Greg Kennedy and the local community. He was also able to spend time both with those affected by the bushfires and those helping in the recovery. Some people have lost almost everything; others had lived through days of danger and uncertainty.

Bishop Michael was impressed by how wonderfully everyone had rallied round to join in supporting the emergency services, providing immediate relief and pledging to be there to help in the long road to recovery.

“This disaster, horrific though it has been, has also brought out the best in many people,” said the Bishop.
