We are in the midst of national Anti-Poverty Week (15-21 October). It aims to strengthen public understanding of the causes and consequences of poverty and hardship around the world and in Australia. As part of Anti-Poverty Week, there are a number of events being hosted in Melbourne by Catholic Social Services Victoria, and our Member organisations, which aim to engage us more deeply with the challenge of poverty and our call to respond.
 
Increased education and awareness, and a united voice from churches are just some of the things that are needed to help shift public opinion and policy in supporting refugees and asylum seekers. More than 20 people gathered at the Cardinal Knox Centre in East Melbourne on 11 October to discuss how Catholic parishes can strengthen the support provided to refugees and asylum seekers living in the community.
Youth mental health is one of the big issues facing our local Vietnamese community. To address this, a mental health awareness discussion forum, 'Viet Youth In Crisis - How can we help?', will be held on Saturday 28 October, at 1.30pm, at St Joseph's Hall, corner of Buckingham and St James Avenue, Springvale. Download flyer, here.

You are warmly welcomed to join us for an interactive forum on integral human development in Catholic social teaching: looking back to 1967, and looking forward in Australia today, within the context of the Australian Bishops' 2017 Social Justice Statement Everyone's Business, on Thursday 19 October, from 12pm - 2pm at Cardinal Knox Centre.
