Andrew Chan, Myuran Sukumaran and their companions did not deserve to die - life is sacred, and execution is not a just punishment.  May they now rest in peace, and may their families and those close to them be consoled by the support they have received from the broader community.

As we hold all affected in our thoughts and prayers, may we recommit to working for more just structures, including the abolition of capital punishment throughout the world, and the just and humane treatment of all within the criminal justice system, in Australia and abroad.

Council to Homeless Persons, with Melbourne City Mission  and Hope Street Youth and Family Services, launched the April edition of Parity entitled Too Much Too Young: Responding to Young People at Risk of Homelessness at Melbourne City Mission on 15 April 2015.

This edition of Parity highlights the recent research undertaken by Paul Flatau (UWA CSI) and colleagues nationally that underlines that young people leaving out-of-home-care, are at far greater risk of becoming homeless. This research focussed on the personal and social costs of youth homelessness.

Fr. Daniel O’Leary speaks of the resurrection of the Lord like this:  Just as Jesus embraced his darkness and in so doing, became the Light of the World, we too are invited to believe that this transformation is ours for the asking. Because he freely accepted his death, and all the previous little deaths of his life, in a willing sacrifice, but not without much struggle, doubt and effort, an explosion of healing light and love reverberated around the world. 

Catholic Social Services Victoria has urged the Andrews Government to ensure sustainable community services for many years to come through the development of well-articulated policy objectives and adequate resourcing. In a pre-budget submission to Treasurer Tim Pallas, Catholic social services called on the Government to adopt a budget strategy that would address the needs of those who are most vulnerable. Fund priority needs across the social services sector, recommit to a comprehensive strategy analogous to redress disadvantage.
