Members and friends of Catholic Social Services Victoria are cordially invited to join the Catholic social services community at 9.30am on Thursday 9th March 2017 for our Commissioning Mass and Annual General Meeting. Bishop Pat O’Regan, Bishop of Sale, will be our principal celebrant. Robyn Miller, CEO of MacKillop Family Services, will provide a reflection after Communion. The Mass will be followed by our AGM, and refreshments.
More than 100 adults and children gathered at Our Lady of the Assumption Parish in Cheltenham on Saturday, 27 August for the “Reimagining Parish Services Expo”. Leaders from more than 15 parishes in the South Easter corridor, and social service agencies exhibited a diverse range of services. Further Expos in the north, east and west of Melbourne are envisaged.
Planning is now underway for similar events in 2017: Saturday May 6 at St Francis Xavier's Montmorency, and later in the year in the west of Melbourne, and at a parish in the east.
