All are invited to the 2019 Ozanam Conversation on the topic, 'Standing Up; Reclaiming Lay Leadership in the Catholic Sector' on Wednesday 24 July 2019, 6.30pm-8pm at the Catholic Leadership Centre, 576 Victoria Parade, East Melbourne. Renowned journalist and broadcaster Geraldine Doogue AO will join with Francis Sullivan, CEO of the Truth Justice and Healing Council in leading the conversation.
The Fair Work Act has  "failed to provide an adequate wages safety net for low-paid workers with family responsibilities", a Catholic Church delegation has told the Fair Work Commission. John Fernon SC and Brian Lawrence appeared before the Expert Panel of the Fair Work Commission on 15 May, saying advocacy on behalf of low-income families is needed “because their interests have not been sufficiently protected by the decisions in the annual wage reviews”.
Congratulations to Mary Jamieson, Catholic Social Services Australia's director of corporate services, who was bestowed the symbol of honour of the Exalted Cross – Pro Ecclesia et Pontifice (for services to the Church and to the Pope), which is instituted for persons distinguished for outstanding service and zeal. Mary has worked with CSSA for the past 15 years.
It has been a challenging week for those of us who care deeply about the safety and wellbeing of vulnerable children. Monday night's Four Corners program on ABC TV exposed the shocking and inhumane treatment of children, including primary school aged children, in Brisbane City Watch House. Last week the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare released the shocking news that the number of children and young people in Victoria’s prisons has increased by 36 per cent over the past five years - despite an overall drop in young people coming into contact with the justice system.
