Pastoral letters from Pope Francis and from Archbishop Comensoli, and the response by the Church in Australia to the recommendations of the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse, make deep commitments to solidarity with victims and survivors, to a just and compassionate response, and to prevention of abuse and of cover ups.  The living out of these commitments is a challenge to us all, and will be a touchstone of the integrity of the Church in Australia.

The Australian Catholic Bishops’ Social Justice Statement for 2018–19 is titled A Place to Call Home: Making a home for everyone in our land. It confronts the growing challenge of homelessness and housing insecurity in Australia.

parishes are invited to a forum on 24 October on what they can do to implement the statement; and
all are invited to the Melbourne launch of the statement on Tuesday 18 September 

Homelessness is a challenge for all levels of society: for government, for Church and community, and for us as individuals. Each one of us can make a difference and, when we join with others, we can be a real force for change that ensures everyone has a place to call home.  The statement provides a way forward for all. 

Author Anne Tuohey has worked with Fr Kevin and many others to produce an insightful and engaging account of Kevin's life, ministry and vision. 

During Anti-Poverty Week 2018, on Wed 17 October, we will be hosting a Lunchtime Conversation with Brian Lawrence on Child Poverty within Families, followed by an Ecumenical Anti-Poverty Prayer Service.  All are welcome.
