Engaging with young professionals and emerging leaders within Catholic social services has to become a key part of strategic thinking among CEOs and “not just a nice thought”, according to Mark Monahan, Executive Officer of Edmund Rice Services – Mount Atkinson. “We need to be intentional and strategic about their formation and professional development because they will be leading our Catholic social services organisations into the future,” he says. “And it’s not something that CEOs and leaders should be considering in a few years’ time; it needs to be addressed now."

"The time span is significant and they have weathered many storms. There have been waves of protest, mental illness and self-harm. They have seen riots, death and brutality, and received hospitality and disdain in seemingly equal measure. They have often been dismissed, but at other times listened to and heard across the world." A powerful written piece by Josh Lourensz of Catholic Alliance for People Seeking Asylum about his recent visit with refugees and asylum seekers in PNG. 

Brigidine Asylum Seeker Project (BASP) continues to play a vita role in supporting some of our most vulnerable communities members. We are reminded that "donations are not always about money". They've provided a comprehensive list of practical ways we can show our support, from a spare room, to cleaning products and specific household items. 

The 16 Days Against Gender Based Violence campaign is held each year, beginning on the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women, 25th November, and ending on International Human Rights Day, on 10th December. With the 2019 theme being Ending Gender-based Violence in the Workplace, the campaign reinforces the fact that violence against women is a human rights violation. ACRATH (Australian Catholic Religious Against Trafficking of Humans) has prepared a number of resources to assist your participation in the campaign.
