On Thursday 13 July 2017 CSSV presented the first Train The Trainer workshop in Catholic Social Teaching for 2017 at Edmund Rice Centre, Lower Plenty. The main objective of these Train The Trainer workshops is in response to CSSV member organisations to assist and facilitate in-house training in Catholic Social Teaching in an adult learning environment.This workshop was co-facilitated by Peter Hay (Edmund Rice Oceania), Sr Bernadette Keating (Presentation Sisters) and Peter Hudson (CSSV). There were nine participants for the workshop from across  five CSSV member organisations and two other colleagues from the wider sector.

Sr Brigid Arthur from the Brigidine Asylum Seeker Project and Paris Aristotle AM, CEO of the Foundation for Survivors of Torture, thanked participants at Catholic Social Services' Forum for Parishes (held on 11 July 2017), for maintaining their support for refugees and people seeking asylum.

Sr Brigid contrasted the harsh official treatment of asylum seekers with that of generous people in parishes and communities who advocate for more humane treatment and who provide accommodation and financial support for people, many of whom have been abandoned with absolutely no means of support.
 
The John Pierce Centre is excited to host the Deaf Catholic Conference in Melbourne, August 2017. It is the first in over a decade! The theme will be “Our Community of Faith - Reflect, Embrace and Nurture”. 

On Thursday evening 22 June CSSV held the fourth (& final) workshop in the 2017 Mission In Leadership series.
The evening was led by Fr Joe Caddy, outgoing CEO of Catholic Care Melbourne, and Episcopal Vicar for Social Services in the Archdiocese. An evaluation with participants at the end of this evening indicated a general approval with the content and style of this four-evening series and an encouragement to offer it again in 2018 in the light of a thorough evaluation of the past three years of the series.
