Understanding the Victorian Budget: 2017 and Looking to the Future - Thursday 25 May 2017: 7.15am for 7.30am start. A presentation and discussion with Daniel Mulino MP, Parliamentary Secretary to the Treasurer. An economics PhD from Yale, Daniel Mulino worked as a public servant, political adviser at state and federal level, and  a consultant prior to his election as MLC for Eastern Victoria November 2014.

The spirit of generosity, service and collaboration was truly alive as more than 60 people from across the northern suburbs, and beyond, gathered at St Francis Xavier Parish in Montmorency for the ‘Parishes as Centres of Service Expo’ on Saturday 6 May.
Hosted by Catholic Social Services Victoria and St Francis Xavier Parish, the expo provided an opportunity for parish representatives, social services agencies, groups and organisations, to gather in one place to network and collaborate, share ideas and resources, and to dream and plan the way forward for their parishes and service-outreach programs among the community.
In this Eureka Street article by Frank Brennan SJ, CEO of Catholic Social Services Australia, he explains that Tuesday evening’s Budget announcement provides an opportunity for the government to “create a clear narrative as to how it will achieve equitable and sustainable growth”.
 
"This year's Budget is an opportunity for government to commit itself to mutual respect, equality and a fair go for the present generation of 'haves' and 'have nots', and for future generations whose financial burdens will be eased should the deficit be reduced and should growth be sustained.”
More than 17,000 people volunteer with the 50 member organisations of Catholic Social Services - a critical contribution to our work of service and work for justice. In the lead up to National Volunteer week, 8-14 May, we've released a special edition news update recognising and thanking the role of volunteers in our community.
