Hearing, Healing, Hope: The Ministry of Service in Challenging Times - get your copy!
Our new book, Hearing, Healing, Hope: The Ministry of Service in Challenging Times, builds on the reflections
and challenges of keynote speakers, workshop leaders and engaged participants
at the Catholic Social Services national conference held in Melbourne in
February 2018. It includes an array of inspiring, practical and useful resources for all involved in Catholic social services, nationally.
The book was launched late last year in Canberra, Brisbane, Toowoomba, Warragul, Perth and Melbourne, the latter of which was launched by prominent barrister and human rights advocate, Julian McMahon QC (click here

According to Archbishop
Mark Coleridge, President of the Australian Catholic Bishops
Conference, "Hearing, Healing, Hope
brings work together as a basis for
further reflection and makes it available to people gathered around a board
table, for example, or to an executive team, or a group of staff new to an
Book contributor Elizabeth
Proust says: “So, with more accountability, more onerous
responsibility, and often less funds, this space requires dedicated people who
not only understand their own organisations and the sector but also
understand the community and the global factors at work, which will change and
disrupt what we are doing”.
In her chapter, Darlene
Dreise sets a challenge: “Each of us is therefore called to work towards
the unknown possibilities to be revealed through the true flourishing of the
original peoples of this land”.
This is a valuable resource for all working within the Catholic Social Service sector.
