It’s been a great night here in Melbourne for the annual dinner of Catholic Social Services Victoria (held Friday 4 August 2017). Life members Kevin Mogg, Bernie Geary and Vicki Clark were in attendance. Sherry Balcombe welcomed us to country and we honoured Sr Joan Healy RSJ and David Beaver as the new life members. It was a very joyful night for all. Good energy in the room. As Joe Caddy said, "there was a room full of people bringing together love and knowledge."

Amid the bombardment of information and sometimes-polarizing effect of social media, Fr Frank Brennan SJ AO, Chief Executive Officer of Catholic Social Services Australia invited participants at a recent workshop to use technology “to help break down silos, to provide links to where you can find the space for silence, and for the deep and considered thinking.”
 
He was addressing more than 50 participants from across the Catholic social services and mission sector, who gathered at the Cardinal Knox Centre in East Melbourne on Wednesday 26 July to participate in a social media workshop. This page includes links to resources requested by participants on the day.
