An Invitation to join us on this evening to celebrate our work, collaboration and to strengthen links in our community of service.

 

Pope Francis has published his long-awaited encyclical Laudato Si (Praised Be To You) on our relationship with the whole of creation. The encyclical places the care of creation, our “common home”, at the heart of Christian theology. He calls on our fragile world to leave behind the myth of unlimited material progress and proposes instead a “sense of fraternity that excludes nothing and no one” and an understanding of the Earth as a “shared inheritance”.
In collaboration with Aboriginal Catholic Ministry, this three hour interactive workshop will provide community service practitioners and managers with the skills and resources needed to work respectfully with Aboriginal organisations and engage with Aboriginal clients.  
 
This next scheduled workshop in the CSSV Catholic Social Teaching series will be targeted to the south eastern region membership of Catholic Social Services Victoria (although others are most welcome).
Click here for the submission to the Victorian Royal Commission on Family Violence. Thanks to our Working Party for work on this, and for our ongoing project to play our part in building a safer community.

Thanks too to Patricia Faulkner and all who participated in the 2 June 2015 briefing and discussion with Patricia, a member of the Royal Commission into family violence. Click here for a copy of the issues paper from the Royal Commission.  The submission from CSSV to the Royal Commission will be available soon.

Much is being done by parishes and organisations to welcome asylum seekers and refugees.  Our role is to help parishes in this work and to provide links to other parishes and agencies that may be able to help.

CSSV is offering the first evening workshop for 2015 in its Catholic Social Teaching series for leaders on Thursday 7 May. This introductory workshop is ideal for busy executives who are giving of their time and expertise to our member organisations in the Catholic social service sector.
