Catholic Social Services Annual Dinner - a joyful night for all
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.
Joan Healy has given a life time of service to people in need, in recent years most especially to refugees and asylum seekers.
David Beaver has made significant contributions to the Catholic social services ministry in Australia. Additional to his leadership of Centacare Ballarat over a significant 23 years, his contributions to the work of Catholic Social Services Australia at the national level have been extensive. We are pleased that we will continue to have a connection with David through his recent appointment as a formation facilitator for the new Ministry Leadership Program.
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."
