New research released today by Catholic Social Services Victoria warns that the Victorian government’s move to abolish suspended sentences will have a debilitating effect on Victoria’s corrections system.
                      
The report finds that community safety may well be compromised by the reforms, which will add an extra 5,500 people to Victoria’s corrections system each year, effectively doubling the number of people who receive community orders at a time when the system is under pressure from so many directions. 
Thanks to everyone who contributed to the success of our conference on 9, 10 October.  It brought together an excellent line up of leaders and participants to explore the impact of Catholic identity and mission on what we do and how we do it.  In the words of one highly respected participant:   I enjoyed the conference … interesting … lots of good people … energising commitment to the ‘mission’ … honest about the challenges they suffer … all in all, good stuff!
A book of confernce proceedings is in preparation.  Click through for videos and papers, which will be added to the site as they become available.
When Pope Francis visited a refugee shelter in Rome on 11 September, he called for the Church to support refugees.  Many parishes and other religious bodies in Australia, including Catholic social service providers, are doing this.  But we must work together to respond more fully to the Pope’s inspirational preaching of the Gospel.
