The Smart Justice symposium, Remaking Justice, will bring together government, academic, legal and service sector leaders to explore opportunities for working together to improve the justice system. The symposium will hear from people with direct experience of the justice system and examine critical issues, including the recommendations in the Victorian Ombudsman’s landmark report, Investigation into the rehabilitation and reintegration of prisoners in Victoria and recent update.

Br Mark O'Connor fms has written a beautiful Winter Reflection for us to ponder during these colder months. The reflection includes a poem titled Romanesque Arches by the late Swedish writer and psychologist Tomas Tranströmer (winner of the 2011 Nobel Prize for Literature). Tranströmer was a mystical observer of the sacred in the ordinary; someone who, although felled by a stroke 20 years ago and unable to speak, kept on communicating, even in the ‘winter’ of his life.

Food is a basic human need.  Catholic parishes across Victoria provide food support to people in need, in a variety of ways.
There are a number of Food Banks that depend on parish support. Programs vary but the essential model is the same. Churches provide a venue, volunteers provide labour and various support organisations provide nutritious food, transport of goods and financial support to help the programs run smoothly. 

The Anglican Diocese of Melbourne recently launched its Let’s Fully Welcome Refugees: Parish Pack, Resources for supporting and advocating for asylum seekers and refugees.  Catholic Social Services Victoria is very happy to have collaborated with The Venerable Jan Crombie, Archdeacon, Parish Partnerships, Anglican Diocese of Melbourne, who developed the pack, in part drawing on resource materials from our Welcome The Asylum Seeker Parish Support Program.
