Deaf Catholic Conference sparks energy and commitment
The Deaf Catholic Conference in August 2017 sparked an energy and commitment to keeping channels open, sharing practices and experiences and offering support to all in the Australian and New Zealand Deaf Catholic communities. Hosted by the
John Pierce Centre,
it was the first such conference in over a decade. The theme was ‘Our community of faith: reflect, embrace and nurture’. See
Congratulations to the John Pierce Centre on their work in bringing this together.
Victorian Government recognised for its support of refugees and asylum seekers
At our most
recent forum on parish support for asylum seekers
, Catholic social services reiterated its support for the
Victorian Government’s assistance for asylum seekers who have been cut off from Federal Government benefits
. Catholic agencies and parishes, together with many others, are already providing substantial accommodation, material aid, mental and physical health, legal and other support to this group, and to many other asylum seekers and refugees in similar circumstances. Our agencies and parishes warmly welcome this Victorian Government initiative and are keen to keep contributing themselves.
Special message to Hindus on the occasion of the festival of Diwali
The Catholic Church in Melbourne, along with the Vatican, sends an annual greeting to Hindus on the occasion of the festival of Diwali. This message offers warmest greetings and the blessings of prosperity and success on the occasion of Diwali, and looks forward to the Catholic and Hindu communities ‘doing more together in the future for the common good of our society’.
May the celebration of Diwali be a time of joy for us all.
