Our Events

Our 2016 professional Development Program for Leaders in Catholic social services is now underway.

Presented by the staff of Catholic Social Services Victoria as part of our Catholic Social Teaching Series.
Thanks to Bishop Vincent Long, and to Sr Joan Healy, for leading our Commissioning mass on 17 March:  'we find God in others and we bring him there.'

50 years ago, towards the end of the Second Vatican Council, Gaudium et Spes gave voice to a positive engagement of the Church with the world.  A gathering at Catholic Social Services Victoria on 7 December 2015 was an occasion to celebrate and explore the teachings of Gaudium et Spes, to better inform our Gospel-inspired work of service and work for justice.

Thanks to speakers, Bernie Geary, Principal Commissioner for Children and Young People, and Micaela Cronin, CEO of MacKillop Family Services, for presenting at our 9 October 2015 Breakfast Briefing on the care and protection of vulnerable children.  This briefing enabled discussion on recent issues and reports - these include As a Good Parent would... by the Chief Commissioner, and the current Victorian Government Roadmap for Reform process.  
The Breakfast helped renew our shared commitment to work together to ensure that Victoria’s support for vulnerable children meets the aspirations of the children, the families and society.  Thanks to all who participated.
And congratulations and best wishes to Bernie, on the subsequent announcement of his retirement - a job well done over many decades, and an inspiration to so many.

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.
