On Thursday evening 22 June CSSV held the fourth (& final) workshop in the 2017 Mission In Leadership series.
The evening was led by Fr Joe Caddy, outgoing CEO of Catholic Care Melbourne, and Episcopal Vicar for Social Services in the Archdiocese. An evaluation with participants at the end of this evening indicated a general approval with the content and style of this four-evening series and an encouragement to offer it again in 2018 in the light of a thorough evaluation of the past three years of the series.

The City of Melbourne has had a long history of responding compassionately to homelessness in the CBD. Along with many others in this sector, Catholic Social Services Victoria believes the best response to homelessness is housing and that a range of other responses exist to manage the crisis, which don't involve laws or bans. The Council to Homeless Persons has provided a variety of information and resources, including a video resource and list of “10 things Melbourne Council could do instead of homeless bans”.

Catholic parishes play an important role in supporting and serving the most vulnerable within their local communities. Whether it be in the assistance of material, financial or relational support to newly arrived asylum seekers, or being aware and knowing what to do in the situations of family and domestic violence, or reaching out to an elderly or isolated neighbour, we all have a role to play in bringing to life the Gospel message.


Catholic Social Services Victoria invites members, friends and those we work with to our Annual Dinner on Friday 4 August 2017. An opportunity for the broad Catholic social services community, our supporters and those that we work with to celebrate our work, and to strengthen the links between those who are active within our community of service.
