Catholic Social Services Victoria, together with Edmund Rice Ministries and Presentation Sisters will host a Catholic Social Teaching Train the Trainer day on Tuesday 28 November from 9.30am to 4pm at St Joseph's by the Sea, 16 Esplanade, Williamstown. Titled, 'Catholic Social Teaching: A lived, reflective experience of the guiding principles', those responsible for mission and culture development within their organisations, are encouraged to attend.

The Australian Government has recently announced changes that will leave hundreds of people and young families transferred from Nauru or Manus Island without any financial support or housing. Meanwhile, more than 800 asylum seekers on Manus Island, most of whom have been assessed as refugees, have been told they must leave the detention centre so it can be closed. They fear that, once the detention centre is closed, Australia will leave them with no future and no hope in PNG. The Forum will discuss ways in which you and your parish can make a difference.

Catholic agencies supporting asylum seekers and refugees met last week to respond to the federal government’s withdrawal of financial and housing support from detainees from Manus Island and Nauru who were brought to Australia for medical and mental health treatment. 

You are warmly welcomed to join us at 12.00-2.00pm at Cardinal Knox Centre for an interactive forum on integral human development in Catholic social teaching: looking back to 1967, and looking forward in Australia today, within the context of the Australian Bishops' 2017 Social Justice Statement Everyone's Business.

Discussion leaders: Fr Bruce Duncan CSsR, Professor Paul Smyth (both of whom were significant contributors to Everyone's Business).
