Great news that Australia is to take 12,000 more refugees, plus provide additional assistance to those in need in the Middle East. 

As the Bishops' Social Justice Statement highlights, it's now also time for justice for all asylum seekers in Australia.
 
The response across the Church and community has been very positive.  Archbishop Denis Hart has called for a renewed commitment of ‘prayer, discernment and work’ at parish level and beyond, and pointed out that many Melbourne parishes are already reaching out in support, care and assistance to asylum seekers in our community.  He encourages a response ‘as Christ would want, to those in need.’ 
 

National Child Protection Week invites all Australians to play their part to promote the safety and wellbeing of children and young people.
 
Click here for a reflection from Catholic Social Services Victoria on the challenge posed by recent reports about vulnerable children, including As a good parent would from the Child Safety Commission. 

Among other things, 'a whole of society response is needed. We are all called to take responsibility for our own behaviour, but also to play our part in changing the general culture through our impact on those around us.'
