Catholic Social Services Victoria today (21 August) reflects, with its members:
"These are challenging times for all those associated with the Catholic Church in Victoria. Today the Court of Appeal dismissed Cardinal Pell’s appeal against his sexual abuse convictions. ... These are challenging times for victims and survivors of abuse, their families and communities.  Our response to that should surely include a commitment of support and solidarity with all who have suffered, and a commitment to playing our part to ensure that all children and vulnerable people are protected....These are also challenging times for those in Catholic agencies who contribute as part of the Church’s response to the Gospel imperatives of loving service and work for justice... 
Our August newsletter is full of the latest news in Catholic social services Victoria, and also features a large number of upcoming events, both from us and our members, such as Jesuit Social Services, MacKillop Family Services, McAuley Community Services for Women, CatholicCare, ACRATH and Wellsprings for Women, to name a few.

The unique and enduring leadership and contributions by women of faith in Australia over the past 75 years was the topic of discussion at the annual John Wallis Memorial Lecture in Melbourne this week. More than 100 people attended the lecture, hosted by Highways and Byways – A Community of Service, to mark the 75th year of the Missionary Sisters of Service.
All are welcome to join with the John Pierce Centre community for its annual Ephpheta Mass on Sunday 18 August 2019, at 11am. The word Ephpheta means "be open" and has been used as a special celebration in the Deaf Catholic Community Calendar for many years. Mass will be celebrated by Fr Wayne Edwards (AUSLAN interpreted) at the John Pierce Centre, 25-35 High Street, Prahran.
