Sunday the 19th of July 2020 marks seven years since former Prime Minister Kevin Rudd announced that people seeking asylum, arriving by boat, will never be settled in Australia and be processed offshore. After these seven years there have been many tragic consequences resulting from this policy. This year due to COVID-19 we cannot gather in person to mourn or protest, but you can take a candle and 7 minutes of silence, at 7pm on the 19th July in your own home or backyard. Make a video or photo as you do this, have an accompanying sign or message and then share your photograph/video after using the hashtags #freetherefugees #7yearstoolong #GameOver. More information here.

The head office of MacKillop Family Services is one of the oldest orphanages in Australia. Being of such historical significance, it’ll be ‘opened up’ to the public virtually as part of the Open House Melbourne weekend on 25-26 July. An interactive map and tour will showcase elements of the building and give insight into the social history from the mid-1800s. There’ll also be two live Q&As. Join the Facebook event and skip the queues to take part in the online Open House tour, here

Research into disasters suggests that people are at greater risk of experiencing family violence during periods of crisis, such as the current coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. With this in mind, member organisation Good Samaritan Inn, which provides short-term accommodation for women and children escaping family violence and homelessness, has launched its 2020 Winter Appeal.

Aboriginal Catholic Ministry Victoria has recently launched a new book, The Seed Has Grown: Our Story 1997 - 2019. As detailed on the flyer, the book outlines the incredible journey of Aboriginal Catholic Ministry in Victoria. "The Aboriginal Catholic Ministry is what a true model of Reconciliation looks like - black feet, white feet proudly walking together in the footsteps of our Aboriginal Ancestors."
