‘Chaos’, ‘War zone’, ‘domestic terrorism’, ‘lost childhood’, ‘uncertainty’, ‘tangle’, ‘why me?’, ‘is there a way out?’ These were just some of the words used to describe family and domestic violence by participants in an interactive workshop hosted by Catholic Social Services Victoria last week with Sr Nicole Rotaru rsm. Twenty participants from Melbourne parishes attended the workshop in order to increase their understanding of domestic and family violence and its impact, particularly from the perspective of women and children.
Jesuit Social Services CEO Julie Edwards officially launched the #WorthASecondChance campaign 
on 24 July to expand the conversation around positive approaches to youth justice. The launch featured powerful presentations from two young men, Sammy and Caution, and videos of other inspiring young people who have made the most of their second chance.   
Australia’s treatment of refugees and asylum seekers made the news in The New York Times.
Our July edition of Catholic Parishes Serving the Community newsletter aims to highlight news and events of interest to Catholic parishes and social services agencies. It highlights the ways in which our parishes are assisting, or can further assist the pressing needs of refugees and people seeking asylum, and the ways in which parishes can assist people impacted by domestic and family violence.
