Sr Brigid Arthur from the Brigidine Asylum Seeker Project and Paris Aristotle AM, CEO of the Foundation for Survivors of Torture, thanked participants at Catholic Social Services' Forum for Parishes (held on 11 July 2017), for maintaining their support for refugees and people seeking asylum.

Sr Brigid contrasted the harsh official treatment of asylum seekers with that of generous people in parishes and communities who advocate for more humane treatment and who provide accommodation and financial support for people, many of whom have been abandoned with absolutely no means of support.
 
The John Pierce Centre is excited to host the Deaf Catholic Conference in Melbourne, August 2017. It is the first in over a decade! The theme will be “Our Community of Faith - Reflect, Embrace and Nurture”. 

On Thursday evening 22 June CSSV held the fourth (& final) workshop in the 2017 Mission In Leadership series.
The evening was led by Fr Joe Caddy, outgoing CEO of Catholic Care Melbourne, and Episcopal Vicar for Social Services in the Archdiocese. An evaluation with participants at the end of this evening indicated a general approval with the content and style of this four-evening series and an encouragement to offer it again in 2018 in the light of a thorough evaluation of the past three years of the series.

The City of Melbourne has had a long history of responding compassionately to homelessness in the CBD. Along with many others in this sector, Catholic Social Services Victoria believes the best response to homelessness is housing and that a range of other responses exist to manage the crisis, which don't involve laws or bans. The Council to Homeless Persons has provided a variety of information and resources, including a video resource and list of “10 things Melbourne Council could do instead of homeless bans”.
