During Anti-Poverty Week 2018, on Wed 17 October, we will be hosting a Lunchtime Conversation with Brian Lawrence on Child Poverty within Families, followed by an Ecumenical Anti-Poverty Prayer Service.  All are welcome.

 

In 2015, Pope Francis wrote “an urgent letter” to “everyone on the planet” to express his concern for the devastation that humans are causing to our Earth and its climate, and to ask all people to change the way we treat the Earth, each other and the poor. How are you and your parish responding to the Pope’s urgent request?  

 

The Season of Creation is an annual celebration of prayer and action to protect creation across the globe.  The season begins 1 September, the Day of Prayer for Creation, and runs through to 4 October, the Feast of St Francis of Assisi, who is the patron saint of ecology in several religious traditions. The theme of this year’s celebration is ‘walking together” and will be celebrated by Christian and other faith traditions as brothers and sisters on a pilgrimage of shared reflection and action to better care of creation.
 

Deputy Premier James Merlino told the 2018 pre-election forum at Catholic Social Services that ‘a great society is where the most vulnerable citizens are supported so that they can reach their full potential.’  Deputy Liberal leader David Hodgett noted that ‘good economic policy needs to be balanced with support for those that are disadvantaged, vulnerable and marginalised.’
