Rosh Hashanah

Thursday 17 September 2020

Ecumenical & Interfaith Commission
On behalf of the Most Reverend Peter A Comensoli, Archbishop of Melbourne, together with the Catholic Community in Melbourne, I greet you for the feast of Rosh HaShanah. Shanah Tovah! Rosh HaShanah is a solemn feast and looks toward Yom Kippur. It is focussed on one’s personal relationship with God. In fact, the sound of the Shofar is a call to reflection and repentance. In a sense our current experience of COVID-19 echoes this call and invites us all to communal reflection and co-operation.
