Palm Sunday | Walk for Justice for Refugees

Sunday, April 10 at 1:30 pm to 4:00 pm

On Palm Sunday (April 10th) we remember the triumphal entry of Jesus into Jerusalem, and the celebration of God’s kingdom drawing near – a kingdom in which those who are poor, persecuted and mourning find hope.

This Palm Sunday, 10 April, join with us and thousands of others, who are standing together to call for justice and dignity to be shown towards refugees here in Australia and for people seeking asylum around the world.
Join with the Cathedral community and Melbourne Anglicans by meeting at the State Library Victoria on Sunday at 1.30pm, or find your local rally here: https://aran.net.au/actions/palm-sunday-2022/
