Ecumenical service for Sr Patricia Fox


Melbourne CBD, Saturday 2 June 2018 at 3.00 pm.

The Sisters of Sion Congregation, the Catholic Archdiocese of Melbourne, through the Filipino Chaplaincy Office, have initiated an ecumenical service of solidarity.

Sister Patricia Fox is an Australian missionary who co-founded the Our Lady of Sion congregation in the Philippines in 1990. Much of her work has been centred around assisting and advocating for impoverished farmers and indigenous peoples of the region. 

On April 23, the Philippines immigration bureau revoked Fox's missionary visa and gave her 30 days to leave the country, citing "activities not allowed under the terms and conditions of her visa." in the Philippines in 1990. Much of her work since has been helping impoverished farmers and indigenous peoples.

The NCCA wrote to the Philippine Ambassador to Australia on 26 April and received a response on 2 May. Download the links below to read the NCCA letter and the Philippine Ambassador's reply.
