The Australian Catholic Bishops’ Social Justice Statement for 2018–19, A Place to Call Home: Making a home for everyone in our landconfronts the growing challenge of homelessness and housing insecurity in Australia.

Melbourne parishes are invited to a forum on 24 October on what they can do to implement the statement.  You can also click here for '10 Steps' you can take to make a difference, and here for a program for the evening of 24 October.
Mental Health Week 2018 is rapidly approaching on 8 - 13 October.
You are invited to join the friends and supporters of Catholic Social Services Victoria with the community of St Pius X Parish, West Heidelberg to celebrate Mass acknowledging Mental Health Week on Friday 12 October at 5.00 pm. This is a prayerful opportunity to stand with the suffering Christ in our families and wider communities
and to support our brothers and sisters living with mental health issues.

On Saturday 15 September 2018, more than 30 people from 12 parishes gathered at St Francis Xavier and St Clare Combined Parish of Greater Box Hill to share insights into how parishes might respond to Pope Francis’ encyclical Laudato Si’ on care for our common home, the earth.

Pastoral letters from Pope Francis and from Archbishop Comensoli, and the response by the Church in Australia to the recommendations of the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse, make deep commitments to solidarity with victims and survivors, to a just and compassionate response, and to prevention of abuse and of cover ups.  The living out of these commitments is a challenge to us all, and will be a touchstone of the integrity of the Church in Australia.
