An expectant group of fourteen people gathered on a grey morning at the Flagstaff Gardens in the city of Melbourne on 16 May for the first Catholic Social Teaching Walking On The Land workshop for 2018. This workshop is another in the collaborative venture of CSSV with Edmund Rice Ministries and Kildare Ministries. Two further workshops are scheduled for later in 2018 - 29 August and 28 November.

The 2017 Annual Report of Catholic Social Services includes a summary from each of our Victorian bishops and their dioceses. Substantial in area and mostly sparse in population, Sale Diocese extends west from far East Gippsland at the New South Wales/ Victorian border along the Southern Ocean and Westernport Bay, through the most South Easterly suburbs of Melbourne, east along the Great Dividing Range back to the Southern Ocean. The diocese is led by Bishop Patrick O'Regan. Gippsland’s economy is underpinned by agriculture, mining and electricity production, oil production and a growing tourism sector. Catholic Care Gippsland (CCG) part of the broader Catholic Care for Greater Melbourne/Geelong/Gippsland, is the lead service provider for the Diocese of Sale.
People experiencing short and long-term homelessness face increasing challenges according to an expert panel that addressed the recent Annual General Meeting of Catholic Social Services Victoria. Increased awareness and continued advocacy are key elements of an effective response to this situation.
 
At the 30 April 2018 Annual General Meeting, Jenny Glare, General Manager, Heritage and Information, at MacKillop Family Services and Dr Anne Astin, formerly Chair of the Board at Wellsprings for Women, were re-elected for another two years as Council members at Catholic Social Services Victoria, and Netty Horton, Chief Executive Officer of CatholicCare Greater Melbourne, Geelong and Gippsland was elected for her first term.
