The Diocese of Broome has this week issued an urgent call to Perth Catholics to volunteer in various towns across the diocese.
The Diocese of Broome provides essential services to a number of Aboriginal communities, but due to COVID-19 border restrictions, interstate volunteers are unable to enter Western Australia.
In pre-COVID times, 70 per cent of volunteers working in the Diocese across the Kimberley have come from interstate.
At present, six volunteers are urgently needed in two different locations.
The Kimberley is Western Australia’s sparsely settled northern region.
It’s known for large swaths of wilderness defined by rugged ranges, dramatic gorges, semi-arid savanna and a largely isolated coastline.
The experience of volunteering in the Kimberley will be one to remember.
Volunteering is an opportunity to bear witness first-hand to the positive work of the Church in some of the most remote places in Australia, while also learning about our Australian-Aboriginal culture.
It’s also a unique chance to consider your own growth and development from a different perspective.
The Church is eager to attract volunteers to ensure it continues its mission in the beautiful Kimberley region of Australia.
West Australian people of faith who are prepared to give their time immediately are invited to contact the Diocese of Broome via the details below.
Ideally volunteers are required to serve for a three-month period in return for travel, food and accommodation.
Applicants must be double vaccinated in order to qualify to serve in the Kimberley Mission.
