Catholic Social Services Victoria invites you to the Reimagining Parish Services Expo on Saturday 27 August 2016 at Our Lady of the Assumption parish, 9 Centre Dandenong Rd, Cheltenham.
 
The day aims to celebrate parishes as communities of service and will provide an opportunity to share our work and learn from each other.  It will include presentations from parishes on how they respond to local needs and developing links with parishes and with Catholic social services which can assist in meeting your parish goals.

The Smart Justice symposium, Remaking Justice, will bring together government, academic, legal and service sector leaders to explore opportunities for working together to improve the justice system. The symposium will hear from people with direct experience of the justice system and examine critical issues, including the recommendations in the Victorian Ombudsman’s landmark report, Investigation into the rehabilitation and reintegration of prisoners in Victoria and recent update.

Br Mark O'Connor fms has written a beautiful Winter Reflection for us to ponder during these colder months. The reflection includes a poem titled Romanesque Arches by the late Swedish writer and psychologist Tomas Tranströmer (winner of the 2011 Nobel Prize for Literature). Tranströmer was a mystical observer of the sacred in the ordinary; someone who, although felled by a stroke 20 years ago and unable to speak, kept on communicating, even in the ‘winter’ of his life.

Food is a basic human need.  Catholic parishes across Victoria provide food support to people in need, in a variety of ways.
There are a number of Food Banks that depend on parish support. Programs vary but the essential model is the same. Churches provide a venue, volunteers provide labour and various support organisations provide nutritious food, transport of goods and financial support to help the programs run smoothly.
