St Dominic's East Camberwell Parish Welcomes Asylum Seekers

The parish of St Dominic's East Camberwell has recently erected a large banner facing Riversdale Road, stating: 'St Dominic's Parish Welcomes Asylum Seekers'. The banner is 3.5m long and 75cm high, and was erected after support was given by the parish priest, Fr Peter Toan Nguyen OP, the Dominican Community who reside there, and the parish council.

St Thomas the Apostle Parish in Blackburn has a similar banner, though it runs the length of 4m, and has been on view for several years. The parishes of Williamstown and Brunswick have also shown their support by using banners.
If your parish is considering a banner to show its support for asylum seekers and refugees, and would like to find out more, including costs and measurements, you may wish to email Peter Charles of St Dominic's East Camberwell Parish or email Ray Johnson from the Blackburn Parish.
