Catholic Social Services Victoria held its annual 2019 Anti-Poverty Week Lunchtime Conversation on Tuesday 15 October at the Cardinal Knox Centre, East Melbourne. The Conversation this year was facilitated by Dr Nick Halfpenny, Director of Policy and Research at MacKillop Family Services. Following the Lunchtime Conversation, people stayed on for the Ecumenical Prayer Service conducted by CSSV in collaboration with the Social Questions Commission of the Victorian Council of Churches.
As Mental Health 2019 drew to a close, Catholic Social Services Victoria was pleased to support the parish community of St Pius X West Heidelberg in hosting an inter-faith prayer service in their church on Friday 11 October. Thirty-five people gathered to spend a prayerful hour in song, reflection and prayer to stand in solidarity and respect for the good mental health of all, but particularly to hold gently those among us who suffer from various forms of mental illness.
Here is your last chance for 2019 to experience our very experiential and popular presentation of the principles of Catholic Social Teaching reflected through the lens of Pope Francis' Laudato Si - On Care for Our Common Home. The fourth Walking The Land workshop for 2019 will be on Thursday 28 November at St Joseph's By The Sea, Williamstown.

More than twenty people from nine Catholic parishes and other churches attended the Catholic Social Services Parish Forum “Homelessness – Preparing for 2020” in East Melbourne on 24 September. They heard how Christian groups across Victoria are providing accommodation for rough sleepers, and how they might contribute for next winter.
