Asylum Seekers Support Group

“When you are not allowed to earn a living, how do you provide the most basic human need, food, for yourself and your family?”

The St Michael’s Asylum Seeker Support Group collects donations from our parishioners each week. A collection box is located in the foyer. The items collected are taken to the ASRC foodbank in West Melbourne.
