Diocesan Appeal for ABM Thu 3rd of Sept.

you are in: 2015 News Archive > Diocesan Appeal for ABM


Historians of the Christian church believe that there have been more martyrs for the faith in the last hundred years, than in the previous nineteen centuries. And yet many of us think of martyrs as heroes from the earliest days of the Church. Here in the Diocese of Ballarat we particularly rejoice in and give thanks for the Martyrs of Papua New Guinea.

The Annual ABM Martyrs' Appeal is one simple way in which we can show, by our generous giving, our own commitment to help those parts of the Church for which the Martyrs gave their lives.

Money collected by parishes for the Appeal will be brought to Synod to be presented at the Eucharist commemorating the Martyrs on October 17 at 12pm in the Cathedral.

More information will be available from your parish or you can access any of the circulated documents below.

Any queries may be directed to the Bishop's Registry: 03 5331 1183
