Compassionate God, Your unconditional love for all inspires our hearts and empowers our actions for those who are most vulnerable. May we boldly and humbly serve our brothers and sisters and be steadfast in our work for justice for all your people. Keep our hearts open to the joys and the hopes of our world, and our ears ready to hear your call to truth, justice and reconciliation.

On 1 December 2019 the Catholic community hosted the annual Holding The Light Ecumenical Prayer Service at St Francis’ Church in Lonsdale Street, Melbourne. This service commemorates, honours and prays for all women who have died during 2019 as a result of Domestic Violence.
Sixteen people gathered on Thursday 28 November 2019 at St Joseph’s By The Sea Spirituality Centre for the Catholic Social Services Victoria workshop entitled Walking The Land with Catholic Social Teaching. This third workshop for the year is the ‘coastal walk’ with the key principles of Catholic Social Teaching seen through the lens of Integral Ecology which is so richly presented throughout Pope Francis’ Laudato Si – On Care for Our Common Home. 

The Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety’s Interim Report: Neglect demonstrates serious flaws in the provision of aged care in Australia. Catholic Social Services Victoria is concerned that the Commission’s final report needs to sufficiently take into account the particular needs of some of the most disadvantaged and vulnerable elderly people receiving aged care services. Our submission focuses on the needs of elderly people who have experienced homelessness, long-term disadvantage and marginalisation and as a consequence, have specific care needs as they grow older.
