Social Services Sunday – Sunday 17 September 2017

Social Services Sunday (Sunday 17 September 2017) in the Archdiocese of Melbourne is an occasion for parishes to reflect on Pope Francis' call to reach out in compassion and service with both words and action.  

Click here for Pope Francis' recent call to parishes.

“Let us pray for our parishes, that they not be simple offices, but that animated by a missionary spirit, may be places where faith is communicated and charity is seen”.

This is an opportunity for all Catholic parishes to reflect on the diverse ways that the Catholic community responds to those most vulnerable and marginalised among us.  It will also hopefully assist parishes  to more generously take up the Gospel call to mission and service in both prayer and action.  As well as presenting the range of social services offered by the various Catholic agencies this is an opportunity to acknowledge the large voluntary efforts of so many Catholics across the country in generous and loving service to others.
