Anglicare’s 2016 State of the Family Report titled Positions Vacant? When the Jobs Aren’t There focuses on employment and is informed by Anglicare Australia's first Jobs Availability Snapshot.

Pope Francis marked Sunday 6 November as a Jubilee for Prisoners. He celebrated Mass for the Jubilee in Saint Peter's Basilica, during which he reminded the 1000+ attending prison detainees to never lose hope, or fall into the temptation that they can never be forgiven. 
 
The Catholic Church in Australia also celebrated the Jubilee for Prisoners across the weekend as part of the Year of Mercy. On behalf of the Australian Catholic Prisoners Pastoral Care Council, Bishop Terry Brady prepared a special video message for prisoners. And there's also an informative article by David Halliday on the Jubilee for Prisoners and the important work of prison chaplains in the current (November) issue of Melbourne Catholic magazine, available in parishes.
