Brigidine Asylum Seeker Project (BASP) continues to play a vita role in supporting some of our most vulnerable communities members. We are reminded that "donations are not always about money". They've provided a comprehensive list of practical ways we can show our support, from a spare room, to cleaning products and specific household items. 

The 16 Days Against Gender Based Violence campaign is held each year, beginning on the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women, 25th November, and ending on International Human Rights Day, on 10th December. With the 2019 theme being Ending Gender-based Violence in the Workplace, the campaign reinforces the fact that violence against women is a human rights violation. ACRATH (Australian Catholic Religious Against Trafficking of Humans) has prepared a number of resources to assist your participation in the campaign.

It is with great pleasure that we invite you to attend the 2019 Rerum Novarum Oration, Walking Tall: A Journey towards Treaty and Reconciliation on Tuesday 26 November 2019 at 7pm. The orators are Ms Eleanor Burke and Ms Sherry Balcombe. Download flyer with full details, here.
