Calls continue for the Australian Government to end the current crisis on Manus island.  The Archdiocese of Auckland, New Zealand, joins Catholic bodies in Australia in calling for acceptance of New Zealand's resettlement offer, as part of a full resolution for the refugees and asylum seekers.
Villa Maria Catholic Homes is looking to raise $120,000 through its 2017 Christmas Appeal to transform a tired and outdated indoor and outdoor respite space in Wantirna South used by children and adults with disabilities into a fun, interactive and safe environment. Lachie, aged 13, is one of around 200 children and adults with disabilities who attend Villa Maria Catholic Homes (VMCH) Flexible Respite Service in Wantirna South on holidays and weekends; getting out and about in the community, trying new activities and making new friends. As a not-for-profit organisation, VMCH receives no funding for capital works and relies on community donations to reach its target. 

2017 was a year of great welcome and support by Melbourne parishes for asylum seekers and refugees.

The Welcome the Asylum Seeker Parish Support Program (the Welcome Program) works mainly with parishes in the Archdiocese of Melbourne to support their work with asylum seekers and refugees. The program focuses on providing practical support to asylum seekers and refugees, but this inevitably leads to advocacy as well.
