David McGovern, Diocesan Director, Brisbane

Despite the potentially devastating impacts of the COVID-19 situation, missionaries around the world are rallying behind the communities they serve, assuring them that they will remain to provide crucial pastoral and practical support.

Our Brisbane Director, David McGovern, wanted to offer a message of hope, on behalf of his teammates and all missionaries we support around the world. That message, like the promise of the Easter Resurrection, is one of assurance: "We are still here!"

No matter how much of our current way of life is transformed, we are still here. No matter how isolated we become in our homes or communities, we are still here.

No how much social distance emerges between nations, we are still here.

Your partnership matters

In times of hardship, it’s important that we stick together. COVID-19 is having a significant impact on our mission partners and the Church, and it’s vital that we help support the work of mission to the most vulnerable in this time.
