Will you marry me? Interfaith marriage

Picture this: A young man of Arab decent, Ibrahim, is in love. His beloved, Sarah, is of Jewish or Christian decent. They can see a great future for themselves and are now considering marriage.

Faithful march together for refugees

A huge turnout of over 4,000 at the rally on Sunday demonstrated the feelings of Sydney people regarding the current refugee situation.
