Our Events
Catholic Social Services Victoria invites members, friends and those we work with to our Annual Dinner on Friday 30 August 2019 at the Catholic Leadership Centre, East Melbourne, 6.30pm for 7pm. This is an opportunity to celebrate our work and to strengthen the links between those who are active within our broad community of service. The dinner will also be an occasion to honour Sr Brigid Arthur csb with Life Membership of Catholic Social Services Victoria.
With Winter approaching, across Victoria around 1,100 homeless people, children, young and older people and people with disabilities will be sleeping in city parks, car parks, bushland areas and coastal reserves, without the comforts we take for granted. What can we and our parishes do to help those who are homeless? Join us for a parish forum on this issue on Saturday 8 June, 9.30am-1pm in East Melbourne.
On Saturday 8 June, 2019, with the onset of winter, Catholic Social Services Victoria will host a forum “Homelessness – What can Parishes do?” at the Cardinal Knox Centre, 383 Albert Street, East Melbourne, from 9.30am-1.00pm. Come and hear what the Australian Bishops have to say about making a home for everyone in our land, what the Christian community is already doing to assist, and join in discussions about how you and your parish can help.
All are invited to take part in the City Justice Walk as part of the 'Walking the Land with Catholic Social Teaching' series on Thursday 2 May 2019, from 9.30am-4.30pm. The City Justice Walk provides a practical experience of applying the principles of Catholic Social Teaching to promote the flourishing of creation and the building of a more just and compassionate society.
All are welcome to join our members, staff, leaders, volunteers and friends of Catholic Social Services agencies as we gather to celebrate our mission of justice and service.

On Saturday 23 March 2019, Catholic Social Services Victoria is hosting a parish forum on the topic, Helping our Refugee Families and Friends at the Cardinal Knox Centre, East Melbourne, 9.30am-1pm.
