Call to Lamentation and Commitment on the World Day of Migrants and Refugees

September 26 @ 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Free

On the 26th of September we will all join together for our Call to Lamentation and Commitment on the World Day of Migrants and Refugees. We welcome you, your families and communities to be a part of it.

We hope to have up to 500 people partake in this ceremony. We will begin with a welcome to country. Then have a call to prayer sung to us. We will then ask that everyone turn out their lights and light a candle in the dark, as we read out the names of all the people who have died in Australia’s detention camps over the last twenty years. At the end we will have a prayer of lamentation and conclude with a call to all our elected representatives to again asking for our three requests.

This zoom ceremony will be recorded and the final video will be sent to every Senator and MP in the Federal Parliament. We are making a ceremony of lamentation that is also a political document.
