Conference president Archbishop Timothy Costelloe SDB said it was a time of mourning for all Australians.

“We should all remember in our prayers those who are being treated in hospital and the souls of those who have died,” Archbishop Costelloe said.

“We pray for the family and friends of those who lost their lives or were injured.

“And we pay tribute to the police, paramedics, store staff and shoppers who showed courage and compassion in the face of traumatic circumstances.”

Archbishop Costelloe urged anyone impacted by the attack to seek support.

“May those who mourn know the consolation and comfort of God’s love.”
