National Child Protection Week invites all Australians to play their part to promote the safety and wellbeing of children and young people.
 
Click here for a reflection from Catholic Social Services Victoria on the challenge posed by recent reports about vulnerable children, including As a good parent would from the Child Safety Commission. 

Among other things, 'a whole of society response is needed. We are all called to take responsibility for our own behaviour, but also to play our part in changing the general culture through our impact on those around us.'
 

Pope Francis’ vision of faith challenges us to renew our commitment to the public good, be inclusive and just and to welcome the poor and the vulnerable. It is a vision which embraces people of all faiths, cultures and all people of good will and calls us to deeply care for each other and for our common home, the earth.  Speakers include: Linda Dessau, Pat Dodson, Michael Kirby, Rachael Kohn, Moira Rayner, Vincent Long, Philip Huggins; Frank Brennan, Andrew Hamilton, Francis Macnab, Ehud Bandel, Mohamed Mohidee and more! FR Joe Caddy chairs a workshop in which Julie Edwards, Tony Nicholson and Denis Fitzgerald focus on the evolving nature of community services.

Thanks to all who made the dinner a success - together our endeavours are greater than the sum of our individual contributions.

Congratulations to Vicki Clark our new Life Member and thanks to Vicki for her inspirational affirmation of the importance of Catholic social services to the Church and to the people.
 

Click here for a submission by Catholic Social Services Victoria to the current Victorian Parliamentary Inquiry into end-of-life choices. A key message of the submission is that the inherent dignity and worth of each person is not diminished by any form of disability, nor by the vagaries and vulnerabilities that are part and parcel of human existence, especially as a result of the ageing process.
 
Any comments on this submission or related issues would be welcome – dfitzgerald@css.org.au
