Catholic Social Services Australia and Catholic Social Services Victoria are hosting the National Catholic Social Services Conference, Hearing Healing Hope - Enlivening the Church to respond humbly, which will be held at the Catholic Leadership Centre Melbourne from 21 - 23 February 2018.The conference will bring those working in Catholic social services, from across the country, and provides a fantastic opportunity to share resources, to increase knowledge and best-place practice, and to continue our work in solidarity and co-operation.
Competition and efficiently working markets have their role to play, but collaboration not competition, mission not markets should be the drivers of social service delivery in the 21st century. These are central issues for faith-based service providers.
 
This article in Zadok (August 2017), written by Denis Fitzgerald, Executive Director of Catholic Social Services Victoria, explores challenges and opportunities faced by the faith-based social services sector.
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."
