Hearing, healing and hope: Rousing keynote opens conference

More than 200 Catholic and community leaders gathered in East Melbourne on Thursday 22 February for an opening keynote address by Phil Glendenning AM to launch the first day of the Catholic Social Services national conference, 'Hearing, Healing and Hope'.
 
As Director of the Edmund Rice Centre and President of Refugee Council of Australia, Mr Glendenning’s address explored the mistreatment of Indigenous and Torres Strait Island peoples, the 24 million refugees throughout the world, as well as victims of institutional sexual abuse. "History happened here," said Mr Glendenning, after recognising the traditional custodians of the land and thanking the Aboriginal Catholic Ministry’s Acknowledgement of Country. "Much of that history remains unfinished business, unreconciled." ... "And as the old saying goes, if we do not learn from the sins of our history, we are bound to repeat them."

Following the keynote, a plenary was held on the topic, Economics for a Flourishing Society led by Joe Zabar of Catholic Social Services Australia, with John Roskam, Executive Director of Institute of Public Affairs and Clare O'Neil, Member for Hotham Victoria.
