Catholic Social Teaching states that the ultimate purpose of the justice system is to advance the common good through establishing public order and community safety, foster reconciliation and restore harmony in social relationships disrupted by crime, and, protect the rights of both the guilty and innocent. 
 
Catholic Social Services Victoria has prepared a policy statement about the way our community could best deal with the area of criminal justice. 
 
 
The Victorian Bishops released a statement on 29 November 2016 condemning domestic and family violence in the strongest possible terms, and have called on the whole Church community to work together in preventing violence. "Our goal must be a society where all people are safe in their home, families and close relationships; where violence and abuse are not acceptable; and where all relationships respect the equality and dignity of each person. This is part of the Gospel vision of love and respect."
 
 
 
 
Advent is about learning to wait. It is about not having to know exactly what is coming tomorrow, only that whatever it is, it is of the essence of sanctification for us. Every piece of it, some hard, some uplifting, is sign of the work of God alive in us. We are becoming as we go. We learn in Advent to stay in the present, knowing that only the present well-lived can possibly lead us to the fullness of life.
McAuley House, Victoria’s first purpose built accommodation and support hub for women who are homeless opened on 30 November, in Footscray. The $11m building has been largely funded through the Institute of the Sisters of Mercy of Australia and Papua New Guinea ($7m) and the Victorian Labor Government ($4m).
