It is with the greatest sadness and horror that Archbishop Costelloe and I learnt about the bombings in Sri Lanka on Easter Sunday.

Our immediate thoughts were for the hundreds of victims and their families. We brought them to God, our Merciful Father, in prayer as we celebrated the great Christian feast of the Resurrection.

There will be Members of the local Sri Lankan community who have lost family and friends in these attacks. We express our sincerest condolences to you all and we will continue to pray for your loved ones.

The people of the Archdiocese of Perth stand with you in faith and solidarity.
