Better outcomes for people who are disadvantaged; a resilient Catholic Social Services sector that responds effectively to its changing environment; Catholic Social Teaching making a difference; prevention and response to child sexual abuse within the Catholic Church and organisations; and effective communication and engagement with Church and communities are among the priorities laid out in the Catholic Social Services Victoria's Council strategic plan for 2017-2019, which was recently finalised.
All are invited and welcome to attend the Canberra launch of Catholic Social Services Victoria's book, Review, Reimagine, Renew: Mission making a difference in a changing world.
