Australia’s bishops have implored politicians on both sides to end the “intolerable situation” for asylum-seekers on Nauru and Manus Island. In a statement issued on 18 December, Australian Catholic Bishops Conference president Archbishop Mark Coleridge said “enough is enough” and it was time to find these people a home.
The Missionary Sisters of Service (MSS) have launched an initiative that will see their work in remote and regional Australia continue beyond the life of the religious community. The Sisters have set up Highways and Byways: A Community of Service, which will expand its reach across Australia, and take over the works of the John Wallis Foundation, which the MSS established in 2010 and named after the founder of the MSS, Fr John Wallis.
 
Highways and Byways is inviting grant applicants for projects that can make a difference in the lives of isolated, and often forgotten, Australians. More than $90,000 will be allocated in small grants to community programs in 2019. It is hoped that this figure will increase each year.
