There will be two stand-alone sessions at the upcoming national Catholic social services conference, Serving Communities with Courage and Compassion (26-28 February, Catholic Leadership Centre, East Melbourne), which will be open to the public - everyone is welcome! The first is Beyond Surviving to Truthfully Thriving: Continuing our Journey of Listening in Truth and Justice, and the second is Mobilising Media for Mission and Advocacy.

Significantly, Australian parishes make available a range of social service activities providing for those in need. In some ways, they can reach out to sections of the community that professional service agencies cannot. Services provided by parishes usually have a strong personal focus on those being served.

Catholic Social Services Victoria's February eNews is out now. It highlights some of the latest news from those working within our sector, as well as upcoming events from both us, and our member organisations; there's a few! Highlights include stories and sessions related to our upcoming national Catholic social services conference, Serving Communities with Courage and Compassion (registrations close 19th Wednesday, so be sure to book your place!), the Church's response to Australia's bushfire emergency and a multifaith prayer gathering on the steps of Victoria's parliament to pray for those impacted by the bushfires.
In a statement released 3 February 2020, the St Vincent de Paul Society (Vinnies) has reiterated that every cent of funds donated to the Bushfire appeal will be spent on people affected by the fires. National President Claire Victory said the Society has dispatched $3.8 million (of $13.7m) so far from the Vinnies Bushfire Appeal, mostly as direct cash payments for bushfire-impacted households in New South Wales, Victoria, South Australia, Queensland and Canberra-Goulburn.
