Reimagine, Renew: Mission making a difference in a changing world re-presents many of the papers from Catholic Social Services Victoria's conference (of the same name) held earlier this year.  It includes a number of papers that grapple with the challenge of extending our reaching out to those on the margins in an environment that is challenging and changing rapidly.  The papers in this book illuminate the challenges and shed light on the way forward.
Our submission on infrastructure planning for Victoria highlighted affordable housing and justice reinvestment – addressing causes of crime rather than just responding after the fact – as two priority elements of an effective strategy.

When the school leaving age was raised in 2006 to 17, children in detention missed out. Brendan Murray could see the gap and approached previous Minister Mary Wooldridge; and things began to move in a better direction. Parkville College was established to focus on teaching and learning with a strong emphasis on literacy and numeracy; as well as sport, music and vocational education. Brendan reflected on his work and the issues facing us as a society at a Breakfast Briefing at Catholic Social Services on 2 November.
About 50 colleagues and friends of Catholic Social Services Victoria gathered in the Cardinal Knox Centre in East Melbourne last night for the launch of Review, Reimagine, Renew: Mission making a difference in a changing world.

In the book, officially launched by Archbishop Denis Hart, leaders from Catholic social services and the broader church explore what it means to be a Catholic ministry, and what difference that makes to the communities being served.
