Bells toll for women and children killed through family violence
The bell tolled 63 times at St Peter’s Eastern Hill on Sunday afternoon of 2 December. Each toll marked the death of a woman by someone she knew. The count was 54 in 2017. Each year in December, an ecumenical service, Holding the Light, is held in remembrance of the women and children killed due to family violence. It is hosted by St Peter’s Eastern Hill, East Melbourne, in partnership with
: A Bystander Intervention Program.

On 3 December each year we celebrate International Day for People with Disability (IDPWD), a day created by the United Nations back in 1992. It is a great opportunity to share the stories of the people supported by our Catholic social services agencies and the great things they are doing in their lives. This year’s IDPWD themes are empowerment, equality and inclusion. One of our members,
