The Diocese of Broken Bay has a comprehensive set of resources to assist the Catholic community in gaining a deeper understanding of domestic and family violence, and how to best respond. The resources which come under the title, Catholic Response to Family Violence, include a booklet, fast facts, Catholic social teaching on domestic violence, a prayer, and relevant support programs and response information. Each of these resources can be accessed on this page.

42 Melbourne Catholic parishes and four religious orders are providing social housing to approximately 404 of the most vulnerable members in our community. Catholic social service agencies and health providers accommodate more than 3,000 people who struggle to secure adequate housing through the private market. A report on social housing in the Archdiocese also explores what more can be done for those struggling to find a place called home.


In our July update, we welcome newly elected Archbishop of Melbourne, Peter Comensoli, and give thanks for the many years of service of current Archbishop, Denis Hart. We also extend an invitation to the Catholic social services community to join us for a breakfast briefing on 1 August to discuss our contribution to the Australian Church's plenary council in 2020. There are a number of upcoming events organised by our member organisations, as well as our latest news and event. Find out more, here, and please share this information.
