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.

The Fifth National Conference of the Australian Catholic Migrant and Education Office was held at the Melbourne campus of Australian Catholic University, on 18 and 19 July. This year’s theme is 'Cast into the deep' focussed on the care of migrants and refugees who are coming to Australia—an issue that is heavily debated by the Australian public.

The conference is responding to Pope Francis’ call to go out to the margins of society and 'cast into the deep' (Luke 5:4) and hosted Cardinals Turkson and Quevedo and 130 bishops, priests, religious and lay people. The focus was on pastoral support for the world’s refugees and migrants.
 
Key messages from our forum on 12 July on ‘Responding to sexual abuse and its aftermath’ included that we need to ‘build a culture that is healthy, engaged and relevant, that sends signals that the overall human project is that one of promotion of human flourishing’.

The next step from Catholic Social Services Victoria is a training session for members on building a Child Safe Environment, on the morning of Thursday 24 August.
