It demonstrates that, while violence against women has no single cause, it is strongly associated with gender inequality in both public life and personal relationships.

T H E M E : Freedom and Slavery – Outer and Interior

The program will include a presentation by ACRATH (Australian Catholic Religious Against Trafficking in Humans), and reflections on Freedom and Slavery from a spiritual point of view. This theme was taken up from the Vatican Greeting to Buddhists around the world for the Feast of Vesak, in which joint cooperation between Catholics and Buddhists around the world (especially in Asia) was sought for eliminating modern slavery in all its forms.

For Catholics, the Luncheon will also be an opportunity to visit a local Temple and experience the ritual of “Dana”, in which the local Buddhist community present offerings of food to the monks living at the Temple.
