From the Secretariat, John Ferguson:
Social Justice Sunday this year falls on 30 September.
The Australian Catholic Social Justice Council is preparing for the launch in September of the Australia Catholic Bishops’ Social Justice Statement for 2018–2019.
This year’s Statement for 2018–19 is titled A Place to Call Home: Making a home for everyone in our land. It confronts the growing challenge of homelessness and housing insecurity in Australia.
Homelessness is a challenge for all levels of society: for government, for Church and community, and for us as individuals. Each one of us can make a difference and, when we join with others, we can be a real force for change that ensures everyone has a place to call home.
