The deeper meaning of Lent and its fast: Reflection
The deeper meaning of Lent and its fast, is a time for focusing on what matters, on allowing the death and rising of Jesus to become central in our lives, of waiting for God in prayer, and to turn our minds and hearts to these things as a community. It is a time for attending. The challenge for us is to make space in the busyness and routine of our daily lives for reflection.
Social Service Needs in Regional and Rural Victoria
Some regional and rural communities in Victoria continue to face disadvantage.
, based on the experience of Member organisations, highlights the gaps in social services and calls on government to address the lack of service accessibility and availability, the high cost of transport, energy and technology and the decreased opportunities for education, training and jobs. We'd welcome further insights to inform our planned update.
Addressing the needs of those on the margins is core business for an inclusive economy
Addressing the needs of those on the margins should be part of core business for an inclusive economy, where all can flourish. Victoria has seen unprecedented and sustained economic growth for over two decades. While most Victorians have benefited from this growth, some have not and continue to fall behind, affecting health and wellbeing outcomes. We need service responses that provide people with the help they need, when they need it and at the intensity they need it.
Catholic Social Services Victoria has identified priority areas for further investment in the 2019 Victorian Budget, in a
submission made to the Treasurer
on 27 February 2019.
Catholic Social Services Victoria acknowledges the Traditional Custodians and their Elders in each of the Communities where we work.
