Eighty eight people from 28  parishes, including representatives from Ballarat Diocese, Baptcare, the Church of England, Lentara, Focolare Movement, St Vincent de Paul Society, CatholicCare Melbourne and Catholic Alliance for People Seeking Asylum (CAPSA) came together at St Ambrose's Community Centre, Brunswick, to hear from three inspirational speakers and to share their ideas, experiences and hopes for future action by their parishes in support of asylum seekers. 

Congratulations to all at Corpus Christi Community Greenvale on their 40th anniversary, and to all who have been involved over the years.  Their re-building program promises more decades of building a home where all can feel welcome.

Great news that Australia is to take 12,000 more refugees, plus provide additional assistance to those in need in the Middle East. 

As the Bishops' Social Justice Statement highlights, it's now also time for justice for all asylum seekers in Australia.
 
The response across the Church and community has been very positive.  Archbishop Denis Hart has called for a renewed commitment of ‘prayer, discernment and work’ at parish level and beyond, and pointed out that many Melbourne parishes are already reaching out in support, care and assistance to asylum seekers in our community.  He encourages a response ‘as Christ would want, to those in need.’
