On Sunday 27th September, the Catholic church marks the 106th World Day of Migrants and Refugees centred on the theme, 'Like Jesus Forced to Flee: Welcoming, Protecting, Promoting and Integrating Internally Displaced People'. The Australian Catholic Migrant and Refugee Office has prepared a Migrant and Refugee Kit, which includes stories from local communities, homily notes, reflections and prayers that help draw our hearts and minds to those seeking refuge, love, support and care within our communities.

The Church in Australia marks Child Protection Sunday on 13th September. The day seeks to acknowledge the immense damage caused by the sexual abuse of children, including by priests, religious and lay people within Catholic contexts. The Church makes a commitment to practices and protocols that create and maintain safe environments for all people, especially children and other people who are at risk. 

September 10 is World Suicide Prevention Day, a day that aims to raise awareness around the globe that suicide can be prevented. In these difficult days of extended COVID-19 restrictions and the subsequent loss of jobs and housing security, the devastating impact of isolation and loneliness, more than ever the spotlight has been shone on mental health, reinforcing the importance of keeping this issue at the forefront of our concerns, and our advocacy work.

Catholic Social Services Australia is calling on the Australian Government to ensure the needs of children and vulnerable families are priorities in the economic recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic. CSSA comprises 60 member organisations providing social services in more than 650 communities across Australia. The network supports some of the country’s most vulnerable people.
